Washington: Since the beginning of the highly unpredictable 2016 election cycle, the US-India Political Action Committee (USINPAC) has been hosting interactive Presidential Dialogue series with Democratic and Republican Presidential campaigns to engage and discuss issues important to the Indian American community. In that series USINPAC, a bipartisan body that works to promote India-US ties, held a Google hangout on May 17th with the Campaign of Donald J. Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, represented by Trump surrogate, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter (R-CA-50th District).
The Google hangout was chaired by Manish Antani and Sanjay Puri and drew Indian Americans across the country, eager to know more about Donald Trump’s policies pertaining to US-India Relations, Immigration, Terrorism, Economy and Education among others.
Hunter tried to articulate what Trump’s administration would mean for India and for Indian-Americans. But he ended up repeatedly stressing that Trump’s positions on various issues, including those relating to India would become clearer in a couple of months.
Earlier USINPAC had interactions with the campaigns of Senator Ted Cruz and Gov. John Kasich, and is in talks with the campaigns of Secretary Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders for participation.
