According to the post, the entire Asian continent backed Trump except Washington's rival China and India. TrumpJr's post came despite strong India-US relations during the tenure of his father and both Indian PM Narendra Modi and Trump having a camaraderie.
New Delhi: In a faux pas, Donald Trump, the eldest son of US President Donald Trump, showed Jammy and Kashmir as separate from India. In a tweet predicting a Republican victory the US Presidential polls, Trump Jr posted a map which showed the world in red, except for India and China, which were depicted in blue, the colors representing the Democrats.
He, however, showed Jammy and Kashmir and parts of northeastern states in red, the color of the Republicans, thus depicting it differently than the rest of India. The tweet comes at a time when India and China have been locked in a bitter battle along the Line of Actual Control (LAC).
It may be noted that the US President has vehemently backed India on its stand against the Chinese aggression and offered to help in resolving the impasse with China. Interestingly, Pakistan, Myanmar, Bhutan, Bangladesh is all shown in red while Sri Lanka is depicted in blue.
Washington- @realDonaldTrump, the Twitter feed that grew from the random musings of a reality TV star into the cudgel of an American president, died on Friday. The provocative handle was given birth by a New York real estate tycoon who used it to help him become the 45th US president.
But as Trump began seriously toying with a White House run, it became a tool to scorch opponents and give shape to his nationalist, “America First” philosophy. He deployed its venom equally, whether insulting celebrity enemies (Rosie O’Donnell was “crude, rude, obnoxious and dumb”) or using xenophobia to malign a country (Britain is “trying hard to disguise their massive Muslim problem”).
But Costansó, who later came to work for The Associated Press, saw the then-140-character-per-message platform as a new tool that the real estate mogul could use to boost sales and reach a broader audience. @realDonaldTrump was prolific: On days when its owner was particularly agitated, such as in the middle of impeachment proceedings, it pushed out more than 100 tweets.
The post got 1.8 million likes and nearly 400,000 retweets, according to Fact.SE, which tracks the president’s social media habits and commentary. Before Trump “fell in love” with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un through secretly exchanged letters, Trump used Twitter to dub him “rocket man” and vowed to respond with “fire and fury” if the authoritarian dared attack the United States.
Quality journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce and despite all the hardships we still do it. Our reporters and editors are working overtime in Kashmir and beyond to cover what you care about, break big stories, and expose injustices that can change lives.
However, the map left out some countries like India, China in blue, indicating that they will be supporting the Democratic Party candidate i.e. Joe Biden. Trump jr tweeted, “Okay, finally got around to making my electoral map prediction.
Omar Abdullah, the former Chief Minister of Jammy and Kashmir and Hash Harbor, the Congress leader reacted to the tweet.
