Trump to visit New Delhi, Ahmedabad on February 24-25 | Diya TV News

WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — The White House announced President Trump and the first lady will travel to New Delhi and Ahmedabad, India, on February 24–25 to meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The two democracies are deepening ties, especially militarily. A trade deal is expected to be announced. And President Trump will likely address a crowd in Ahmedabad along the lines of the Howdy Modi event in Houston last year.

While the count is ongoing, it appears the top two candidates from Iowa are again leading the Democratic pack in New Hampshire. Senator Bernie Sanders and Former Mayor Pete Buttigieg lead in this battle to pick up 24 delegates. While Senator Elizabeth Warren and former Vice President Joe Biden do not appear to have enough votes to pick up any. Entrepreneur Andrew Yang announced after the results started to come in that the ‘math’ was not in his favor, and thus he is suspending his campaign.

North Dakota Senator Kevin Cramer met with India’s Consul General in Chicago Sudhakar Dalela to talk about expanding India’s ties with North Dakota, in everything from agriculture and energy to immigration and national security policy.

Hydroxychloroquine

WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — India confirmed they will fulfill the order the U.S. made for hydroxychloroquine, just a couple of days after they banned all exports of the malaria treatment without exception. President Trump and Prime Minister Modi spoke about keeping the supply chain intact over the weekend. And India says the U.S. purchase was approved before President Trump said there would be ‘retaliation’ if the drug was not released, medicine that is being used to treat coronavirus patients without definitive evidence it works. India says they have enough hydroxychloroquine stock for its people today, but reserves the right to hold back the supply if their COVID-19 caseload increases.

One day after he defended firing Captain Brett Crozier from command of the USS Theodore Roosevelt by calling him “stupid,” Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly resigned. Modly was severely criticized for firing Crozier, after the captain wrote an alarming letter seeking faster assistance for his sailors exposed to COVID-19 on board, a letter that was leaked to the press.

Trump calls on Modi to supply Hydroxychloroquine

Trump

WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — President Trump spoke to Prime Minister Modi over the weekend about how the two nations would combat the coronavirus, with a focus on ensuring the supply chain for pharmaceuticals and medical goods continues. But at a press conference, when informed India had banned the export of the drug hydroxychloroquine “without any exceptions,” Trump threatened retaliation. Hydroxychloroquine is typically used to treat malaria, but some COVID-19 patients have found it helpful. And the President has been touting it during his press conferences, without a clinical trial proving if it is indeed effective. India provides nearly half of America’s supply of the medicine. It is not clear whether India’s ban would apply to orders already placed.

Prime Minister Modi called on his nation to unite in the battle against COVID-19 by lighting diyas for 9 minutes at 9 pm Sunday night. Millions of people around India took part, which is now entering its third week of being mandated to stay at home to stop the spread of the virus.

Trump

During a White House Press briefing, President Trump recounted having a conversation with Indian Prime Minister Modi Sunday morning about the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. When informed by reporters that Modi was unlikely to release to any nation hydroxychloroquine, a drug used to treat malaria that may be helpful in treating COVID-19, Trump responded in shock, stating that he didn’t like the plan and that he would be surprised if this was the Prime Minister’s decision due to India’s strong economic ties with the United States in the trade sector. Trump stated that this course of action wouldn’t be consequence free, and that there may be retaliation in response.
