NEW DELHI: US President
Donald Trump, his wife Melania, daughter
Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner will visit
Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad on Monday before heading to the Motera Stadium for the ‘
Namaste Trump’ event.

Official sources confirmed that Trump will spend some time in the Sabarmati
Ashram before heading towards the stadium. The US president will arrive at the Sardar
Vallabhbhai Patel International airport in Ahmedabad around 11:40am on Monday. From the airport, he will head straight to Sabarmati Ashram. According to an advisory issued by the ministry of external affairs, Trump and his delegation will reach the Motera stadium at 1:05pm.

The US president will participate in roadshows on his way from the airport to Sabarmti Ashram and from Sabarmati to the Motera cricket stadium. Previously, there was confusion over whether Trump will visit Sabarmati Ashram or not.

Several world leaders, including Chinese President Xi Jinping and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe have visited Sabarmati Ashram in recent years. The Ashram has been spruced up by local authorities ahead of the US president’s visit.

‘Namaste Trump’ will be similar to the landmark ‘Howdy, Modi!’ event hosted by the Indian-American community during PM Modi’s visit to Houston in September 2019, said an official.

Other members of the US president’s delegation include treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, commerce secretary Wilbur Ross, national security advisor Robert O’Brien and energy secretary
Dan Broulliette.
