    New Delhi (Sputnik): US President Donald Trump is on a two-day visit to India accompanied by First Lady Melania and his daughter Ivanka . He was scheduled to address the 'Namaste Trump' event in Ahmedabad and before visiting the Taj Mahal in Agra.

    Immediately after US President Donald Trump, his wife Melania Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Sabarmati Ashram, Twitter was flooded with tweets about Trump’s signature. The Ashram is dedicated to former Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi

    Trump thanked Modi while signing the visitors' book at the Ashram and mentioned him as his friend. But some netizens pointed out that Trump failed to mention anything about the Ashram itself or about Mahatma Gandhi, while others compared his style of writing to doctors’ handwriting.

    Trump wrote: "To my great friend Prime Minister Modi - Thank you for this wonderful visit."

    ​Trump and Modi garlanded Mahatma Gandhi’s picture while at the Ashram. Trump and Melania even tried their hands at the spinning wheel, which Mahatma Gandhi was fond of using to weave fabric. However, Trump's daughter Ivanka did not visit the Ashram.

    After participating in the Namaste Trump event at the newly built cricket stadium in Ahmedabad in the afternoon, both leaders will visit the Taj Mahal in Agra.

    India and the US are expected to sign a $3 Billion defense deal in New Delhi tomorrow and are expected to discuss a possible trade deal.
