Reprehensible tweet of Trump Jr sparks controversyDonald Trump Junior has shared an electoral map on his tweeter handle. It has created convertial furore in the political circle. In this map he has. shown that whole the world is in support of his father and US president Donald Trump except India, China and Maxico. Surprising and noticeable thing in map is that he has shown Ladakh, Jammu & Kashmir and North- Eastern States separate from Indian map. It indicates that he has tried to show that these integral parts of India are not the parts of India. In this map he shows countries which are allegedly supporting Donald Trump are colored as red whereas India,China and Mexico have been shown in blue colour.
He wrote: "Okay, finally got around to making my electoral map prediction."
Omar Abdullah, the former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir reacted to the tweet.
He tweeted, "So much for the friendship with Trump Senior. Junior has placed India firmly with @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris though interestingly Jr. believes J&K & the NorthEast go against the rest of India & will vote Trump. Someone needs to take his colouring pencils away."
Shashi Tharoor, Congress party leader and member of parliament, also a former undersecretary-general of United Nations reacted to the tweet, taking a jibe at the Indian Prime Minister.
He tweeted: "The price of Namo's bromance: Kashmir & the NorthEast cut off from the rest of India, &the whole "filthy" place relegated by Don Jr to the realm of hostiles, along with China & Mexico. So much for the crores spent on obsequious serenading stadium events!"
During the recent 2+2 ministerial dialogue between India and US that has defence and foreign ministers from both sides, US lashed out at China's aggressive posturing against at the Line of Actual Control referring to the standoff in Ladakh. US secretary of state Michael Pompeo said in an address to the media, "Chinese Communist Party is no friend to democracy. The United States will stand with the people of India as they face threats to their sovereignty and liberty". The statement came in the backdrop of the military tussle between India and China in Ladakh.
Our government has not reacted on this tweet so far. I hope that our government will officially condemn this type of obnoxious statement of US President's son.
What is your opinion on it.
