'Ab Ki Baar, Trump Sarkaar': Now PM Modi Inspires Ad Ahead of US Election

At a recent rally in New Jersey, Donald Trump had praised PM Modi and said he was 'big fan of India.'

New Delhi: With just two weeks to the US Presidential election, Donald Trump's new ad borrows Prime Minister Narendra Modi's winning catchphrase in the 2014 national election.

"Ab Ki Baar, Trump Sarkaar" - the Republican nominee enunciates slowly before the ad fades to the text: "Great for America, Great for US-India relationship."

Behind this ad is the group "Republican Hindu coalition", which organised the meeting in New Jersey addressed by Mr Trump over a week ago.

"We love the Hindus and we love India," the controversial candidate declared in the meeting on October 16. On the sidelines of the event, he gave an exclusive interview to NDTV in which he said: "I have great respect for Hindus. I have so many friends that are Hindu. They are great people, amazing entrepreneurs."

The ad, which begins by wishing viewers 'Happy Diwali', quotes Mr Trump from the event.

In the final weeks of his campaign, the Republican candidate has lagged behind his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton by a few points.
