Trump offers ventilators for India, praises Indian scientists

The Indian-Americans are "great scientists and researchers," Trump said, and added, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a “good friend of mine”. Later, responding to the great praise, Modi thanked Trump for offering the ventilators for coronavirus patients.

WASHINGTON, May 16: President Donald Trump has said the US is sending 200 ventilators for India this month to be used in the fight against coronavirus.

“I am proud to announce that the United States will donate ventilators to our friends in India. We stand with India and @narendrmodi during this pandemic,” the President wrote in a tweet. "We’re also cooperating on vaccine (for coronavirus) development. Together we will beat the invisible enemy!,” he wrote on Friday.

Later at his daily press conference also he said Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a a “good friend of mine”. And, the Indian-Americans are "great scientists and researchers."

"We have a tremendous Indian population in the US and many of the people you are talking about are working on the vaccine too. Great scientists and researchers," Trump told reporters at the Rose Garden in the White House. “We are working closely with India,” he said.

Modi thanked Trump for offering the ventilators for coronavirus patients. He tweeted, “Thank you @POTUS @realDonaldTrump. This pandemic is being fought collectively by all of us. In such times, it’s always important for nations to work together and do as much as possible to make our world healthier and free from COVID-19.”

The Trump gesture follows India exporting hydroxychloroquine to the US on Trump's request earlier. India is the largest producer of hydroxychloroquine, which is widely used by healthcare staff as a prophylactic drug against covid.
