US President Lauds Indian-American Scientists And Researchers
US President Trump has lauded Indian-American scientists and researchers for their efforts in developing medicines and vaccines to treat the ghastly coronavirus.
President Trump said the US was closely working with India to tackle the pandemic.
"We have a tremendous Indian population in the US and many of the people that you are talking about are working on the vaccine too. Great scientists and researchers," Donald Trump said.
This is the first time that a President has recognized the scientific and research talent of the Indian-American community. There are an estimated 4 million Indian-Americans in the US, out of which nearly 2.5 million are potential voters in the 2020 presidential elections this November.
As a presidential candidate, Donald was the first nominee to hold a separate election rally for Indian-Americans in October 2016 in NJ. Since then Trump has described himself as the best friend of India and Indian-Americans.
The coronavirus that first emerged in China's Wuhan city has claimed approximately 3,00,000 lives with 4.5 million confirmed infections across the world so far. The US alone accounts for over 87,000 COVID deaths.
