NEW YORK (Diya TV) — Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is putting the final touches on his campaign before the final push ahead of November’s general election – Friday, the billionaire real estate mogul announced his choice for running mate. Should him and Indiana governor Mike Pence be victorious, they will have plenty of green tea to drink on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Kolkata-based tea company TE-A-ME sent 6,000 bags of Assam green tea to Trump, delivered straight to the Trump Tower in New York. The supply is expected to last Trump four years if he drinks three cups per day — the same amount of time in a presidential term.

Trump received the 11-pound shipment with a friendly message: if you need more, just ask. The company also said the act was in an effort to help the candidate “cleanse” his mind.

An online video message TE-A-ME had this to offer: “Dear Mr. Trump, Namaste from India. We are sending you lots and lots of natural green tea. It fights against harmful free radicals. It helps purify mind and body and regain a healthy balance. It has also proven to make people smarter. Please Mr. Trump drink the tea. For your sake, for America’s sake, for the world’s sake.”

“Donald Trump has the whole world worried… we can’t stop him, but maybe we can change him,” the video added.

TE-A-ME is a signature brand of the 70-year-old Madhu Jayanti International Limited, which claims to sell 10 million tea cups everyday across 42 countries.

“We aren’t doing any sort of marketing gimmick with the attempt,” Sumit Shah, executive director at TE-A-ME said. “In fact, we do not even sell in the US. Our focus is on markets such as Europe, West Africa, India and Europe. All we are doing with this campaign is to take a Gandhian and polite approach to urge Trump to detox a little and think clearly.”
