    New Delhi (Sputnik): Indians started trolling US President Donald Trump soon after he tweeted that "great pressure" had been exerted over the last two years to find the “mastermind” of the 2008 Mumbai Terror attacks.

    The US President tweeted on Wednesday evening that after a 10-year search, Hafiz Saeed had been arrested in Pakistan. "Great pressure has been exerted over the last two years to find him!" Trump wrote.

    Shashank Joshi, defence editor at The Economist, mocked the US president, saying: "Yes, no-one knew where Hafiz Saeed was for the past decade. Like the F-35, you literally couldn't see him".

    ​Asad Hashim, a senior journalist at Al Jazeera English, echoed a similar sentiment while tweeting a link to his story in which he interviewed Hafiz Saeed.

    Lt. Gen. Subrata Saha (Retd.), a member of India's National Security Advisory Board, tweeted to say "POTUS is really abreast".

    As Trump is scheduled to meet Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on 22 July, some Indians are blaming Trump for "playing politics with terror".
