I think that’s largely the way he deals with any foreign leader, including Putin, Xi and Kim Jong-un. He tries to build a personal relationship with them. It doesn’t stop him from opposing them in matters that affect our interests. For example, he’s negotiating a reduction in Indian tariffs against our export products.

My only dislike is that Trump ignores anything bad about the guy he's making a deal with. He'll praise the guy despite much of the country thinking Modi is an islamophobe and racist by his anti-muslim rhetoric and actions.
I guess it's a strategy to get things done though..

And I really couldn't give less of a crap if he did, or if Trump did. That doesn't change the fact that previous contracts with India have taken years to complete, which is what I was pointing out. The fact that this one only took a year to complete is nothing short of both a miracle, and a sign of how desperate they are for them. Who gets credit for the sale is utterly irrelevant to me.
