Slamming President Donald Trump for his remark on India’s air pollution, former vice president and Democratic Party’s presidential nominee Joe Biden on Saturday said he and his running mate Kamala Harris deeply value The united states’s partnership with India.
“President Trump called India ‘filthy’. It’s not how you talk approximately friends and it’s not how you solve global challenges like climate change,” Biden said in a tweet, two days after Trump throughout a presidential debate accused China, India and Russia of not taking good care of their “filthy” air.
“Look at China, how filthy it is. Look at Russia. Look at India. The air is filthy,” Trump had said throughout the last presidential debate with Biden in Nashville, Tennessee on Thursday.
“Kamala Harris and I deeply value our partnership and will put respect back at the centre of our foreign policy,” Biden said in a tweet Saturday as he retweeted his op-ed in the newest issue of ethnic India West weekly.
“The Obama-Biden years were probably the most best we’ve ever had between our two countries. A Biden-Harris administration will build on that great progress and do even more. We will be able to and will have to be natural allies,” Biden wrote in the op-ed.
“That’s why whether elected President, I can continue what I have long called for: America and India will stand together against terror in all its forms and work together to raise a region of peace and stability where neither China nor any other country threatens its neighbours,” he said.
“We’ll open markets and grow the middle class in both america and India, and confront other international challenges together, like climate change, global health, transnational terror and nuclear proliferation,” said Biden.
