Washington, Jan 3: US President Donald Trump took a jibe at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi for funding a library in Afghanistan and, suggested “it was of no use”.
Trump brought up India’s aid during a media appearance at a Cabinet meeting as he defended his push for the United States to invest less in the other countries.
Refering to PM Modi, he said how leaders across the world are talking about their contributions that were nowhere near the “billions of dollars” the US was spending.
Poniting out that he got along with PM Modi, Trump stated he was “constantly telling me he built a library in Afghanistan.”
“You know what that is? That’s like five hours of what we spend,” the US President stated “And we’re supposed to say, ‘Oh, thank you for the library.’ I don’t know who’s using it in Afghanistan.”
