He stated, “Much of this radical left is intolerant towards different citizens. In reality, sometimes I say that they’re the least tolerant citizens within the overall globe. You just look in Kamala Harris. Kamala Harris is of Indian descent & she’s totally run far from the society … The Indian society knows that. She’s not going about informing that she’s of Indian descent, in reality she’s going about informing the exact opposite.”
Harris is multi-ethnic of African descent on her dad’s side & Indian on her mom’s.
She’s variously described as African American, Indian American & Asian American & is the 1st non-White human to run for vice president on a main party ticket.
The dominant people ethnic identity of Harris was African American, a strong section within the Democratic Party, however she’s acknowledged her Indian identity.

He stated, “I think that is various from past presidents to tell you the fact. When you watch just how past presidents have been engaged with China, & you could watch the issues India(In) is having with China & going to likely have with China, &, in reality, globe going to probably have with China in some of the point.”
“You really know the issues with Pakistan(PAK) best than I ever going to & my dad has always being there for your nice nation & I assure he’ll always be there,” he added further.
