Rahul mocks Modi after Trump’s Pakistan statement

Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi on Sunday mocked Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s foreign policy after US President Donald Trump praised Pakistan, acknowledging its help in securing the release of an American-Canadian family from the Haqqani terror network.

“Modiji quick; looks like President Trump needs another hug,” Gandhi tweeted.

Along with the tweet, the Congress leader also posted a screen grab of Trump’s latest statement that the US was “starting to develop a much better relationship with Pakistan and its leaders”, thanking Islamabad “for their cooperation on many fronts”.

Trump had earlier lashed out at Pakistan, accusing it of “housing the very terrorists that we are fighting”.

Trump’s criticism of Pakistan came after Modi’s US visit in June. The Prime Minister was seen hugging Trump who described Modi as a “true friend”.
