(DIYA TV) — Donald Trump has found his way to every American home since his campaign for president began — he’s feuded with Muslims, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, the Mexican TV network Univision, President Barack Obama, and even the Pope. As “Super Tuesday” approaches the Republican frontrunner, Trump has begun pointing his finger at India, once again claiming the country is stealing jobs from Americans on a daily basis, and has pledged to bring said jobs back stateside.


“We’re being ripped off with China, ripped off with Japan, ripped off with Mexico at the border, ripped off by Vietnam, and by India, and by every country,” said to a crowd in Tennessee over the weekend. The speech was greeted with applause and chants of his name in approval.

“They are taking our jobs. China is taking our jobs. Japan is taking our jobs. India is taking our jobs. It is not going to happen anymore, folks!”Quote Author

Trump has recently come under scrutiny over the hiring practices at a private social club he owns, the Mar-a-lago Club in Palm Beach, FL., which has employed hundreds of non-U.S. workers since 2010. Trump has pursued more than 500 visas for foreign workers at the club, ignoring the scores of applications from American workers, the New York Times reported. Trump later defended the move by saying there aren’t enough qualified workers in the U.S. to fill the positions.


Rishu Patel, a 7th grade student who was in attendance at the rally said, “(Trump) will make us safe again.” Rishu attended the rally, which featured Trump’s 40-minute speech, alongside his father Jitu, two of Tennessee’s Indian-American population of roughly 25,000. The majority of Indian Americans living in Tennessee reside in the Nashville and Memphis areas — an area of the state which has established Hindu temples built over 20 years ago.

Some Trump supporters disagree that India is stealing jobs from the United States — Mack, an IT worker who attended the rally said Indians “bring in quality and diversity” to his workplace. Mack carried a banner which read that Trump supporters are the silent majority in the United States.

When Trump finished talking about jobs, he returned to a familiar pillar of his presidential campaign — immigration and building a wall between the United States and Mexico.
