US President Donald Trump was greeted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi with a warm hug as he and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Ahmedabad this afternoon for a 36-hour visit to India. Colourful pageantry greeted President Trump as he travelled in the armoured black car known as the "Beast" on the streets of Ahmedabad, the largest city in PM Modi's home state Gujarat. The two-day state visit comes ahead of President Trump's re-election bid - the US votes in November - and just months after PM Modi's "Howdy, Modi!" event in Texas last year. Mr Trump's visit also comes amid tense trade talks between the two countries.
