US President Donald Trump will be joining Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Houston’s mega event called “Howdy, Modi!” on September 22, the White House said on Sunday.

This will be the first time a US president and Indian Prime Minister will be addressing a joint rally.

White House issued a statement on Sunday to confirm that Trump will attend the ‘Howdy Modi’ event. This will be the third meeting between the two leaders within the span of a few weeks after the G20 and G7 summits.

According to the sources, over 50,000 Indian Americans from across the US have registered for the event to be held at the NRG Stadium in Houston.

“It will be a great opportunity to emphasize the strong ties between the people of the United States and India, to reaffirm the strategic partnership between the world’s oldest and largest democracies, and to discuss ways to deepen their energy and trade relationship,” the White House said in a statement.

The event, “Howdy, Modi! Shared Dreams, Bright Futures,” is expected to draw tens of thousands of people, the statement said.

President Trump will leave Houston the same day for another event with the Australian prime minister Scott Morrison in Wapakoneta, Ohio, the White House said.
