Washington D.C [USA], Jan 23 (ANI): The United States President Donald Trump has reportedly imitated Prime Minister Narendra Modi by faking his Indian accent in the context of US' decision of sending more troops into Afghanistan.

According to the Independent, when Modi travelled to the US last year, he supported the decision of sending in more troops to Afghanistan in a bid to tackle terrorism and insurgency.

At that time, Trump reportedly imitated the accent of Prime Minister Modi, claiming that the latter told him, "Never has a country given so much away for so little in return", referring to US' troops in Afghanistan.

Both the White House and the US State Department were unaware of such a claim. Even, Indian officials in US did not immediately respond to it.

This is not the first time that Trump has reportedly adopted a fake Indian accent.

While he was campaigning last year, the US President had adopted the Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) electoral slogan - "Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar".

He rechristened the slogan to as "Ab Ki Baar, Trump Sarkar" and reportedly said in the fake Indian accent in a campaign video.

Also, Trump reportedly attempted to mock a call centre representative in India. He claimed that he called up his credit card company to find out whether their customer support was based in the US or overseas.

Both the leaders share a close and cordial relationship between them. (ANI)
