The video, titled ‘Four More Years', features excerpts from Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech in Houston during the 'Howdy, Modi!' event last year as well as Modi and Trump’s speeches in Ahmedabad during the US President's February visit to India. 

Trump was accompanied by his wife Melania, daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, as well as top officials of his administration during his two-day visit.

The US Presidential elections are set to be held on November 3 this year. Kimberly Guilfoyle, chair of the Trump Victory Finance Committee, shared this video on Twitter, writing that “America enjoys a great relationship with India and our campaign enjoys great support from Indian-Americans!”

The video went viral and was viewed almost 70,000 times in just a few hours. Trump enjoyed widespread support from the 2-million strong Indian community in the 2016 election, but the Democrats choice of Jamaican-Indian Kamala Harris as Vice-Presidential candidate has the Republicans worried that the vote bloc will be split this time around.

Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate for the Presidential race, has released a vision document for Indian-Americans. In it, he said that “Indian Americans can count on the Biden and Kamala Harris administrations to fight the Coronavirus epidemic to improve the economy and improve migration-related reforms”.
