No guesses today about Twitter: It’s all about Messrs Donald Trump and Narendra Modi on the former’s visit to India.
Best friends Trump and Modi, of course, greeted each other. But POTUS (President of the United States) went further and showed off some Hindi.
हम भारत आने के लिए तत्पर हैं । हम रास्ते में हैँ, कुछ ही घंटों में हम सबसे मिलेंगे!

The President’s social media manager Dan Scavino Jr couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the crowds gathered in Ahmedabad for Trump.

Wordsmith and Congress MP Shashi Tharoor introduced us to a new term — Trump-l’œil — a pun on the French phrase for optical illusion.
"Trompe-l'œil" is an art technique that uses realistic imagery to create an optical illusion. "Trump-l'œil" is an art technique that builds realistic walls to create the optical illusion of prosperity & order. #TrumpWall #TrumpIndiaVisit

Gujarat MLA Jignesh Mevani, meanwhile, was more interested in walls.
Yeh nafrat ki deewarein aur unchi banayenge.
Hum gareeb ke liye makaan, sadak banane ki baat karte rahe. Woh na ho paayi, lekin yeh ek hafte mein bana diya.
Kehte hai sache dil se kaam karo toh jaldi ho jaati hai, lagta hai inke dil sirf deewarein bana sakti hai. #TrumpInIndia pic.twitter.com/yklRPNsfKQ

Indian Youth Congress national campaign in-charge Srivatsa noted a series of events that transpired during Trump’s visit. We understand the “chronology”, sir!
Trump : Let's Build a Wall
Modi : Built in Ahmedabad
Trump : Drain the Swamp
Modi : Yamuna is cleaner for a day
Trump : Make America Great Again
Modi : We won't insist on H1B issues or Trade Deal
Trump is doing what he wants.
Modi is doing what Trump wants!#TrumpInIndia

Nothing has created more interest in Trump’s trip than the menu prepared for his visit to Sabarmati. Here is the menu.
At the #GandhiAshram:
1. There should be no "assorted canned juice."
2. If there is "tender coconut water," it should come from a tender coconut. Not a "tetra pack."
And, of course, there should be no such thing as a "VVIP."
I mean, that one's an easy call. https://t.co/yHmCCF3Nrz

Journalist Tunku Varadarajan seems really disappointed with the menu fir thebPresidentnofbthe United States of America!
A great civilisation is capable of some truly shitty hospitality. The brutally unappetising menu for Trump's tea in…where else?…Gujarat. pic.twitter.com/BmL7hePRKp

And finally, Congressman Salman Nizami shows us what we all wanted to know — what Trump thought of the Taj Mahal.
BJP leaders abuse Mughals; They abuse Shah Jahan; #TajMahal is not India's icon for them; They removed Taj from the tourist manual!
And They had to hide their Gujarat model with a wall; This is what US President wrote on vistors book of Taj Mahal… 👇 pic.twitter.com/b4dd43SCU8
