Jacksonville (Florida), November 3, 2016: Many Indian Americans living in Florida, who supported US President Barack Obama in the previous presidential elections, are now supporting Republican candidate Donald Trump.

According to PTI, though many of the supporters have switched sides, women appear to be solidly supporting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for her work for the benefit of women and children

“She (Clinton) has a lot of experience. She has worked for children and women all her life. There is such a huge gap between her experience and what Trump (70) represent,” said  Indrani Sindhuvalli, professor of Biology at the Florida State College in Jacksonville to PTI.

“He (Trump) is so negative and so inexperienced. I can’t support him,” said Sindhuvalli, who voted for Obama in the last two presidential elections.

“Have you listened to what he has said about women? I would not be voting for him. (Hillary Clinton) is my choice for presidency,” Rani Ignatius, 61, who lives near Orlando, said.

But men seem to solidly support Donald Trump.

Founder and chairman of Orlando-based Shantiniketan (a home for Indian American senior citizens) Iggy Ignatius said, “This is time that we hand over the leadership of the country to a non-politician. Even though he is not very articulate as a politician should be, his policies are in the best interest of the United States,” mentioned PTI.

“His policies make a lot of sense and are in the best interest of the US and the world. This is a man who appears to be genuine in his commitment. I am making a one-time exception to vote for Trump because of his commitment to fight terrorism, and policies on health care and immigration,” said a life-long registered Democrat from Tampa, Dr Pawan Rattan.

However, Dr Rattan faces some serious tough opposition from his own daughter when he talks about supporting Trump. She wants him to support Hillary Clinton.

Satya Shaw, an Indian American certified public accountant, said, “I voted for change. But there is no change. Tax rates have increased. Health care bills have jumped.”

He supported Obama in the previous presidential elections and is not satisfied. He believes that Trump will repeal and replace Obama care on his first day and also reduce the income tax.

US President Donald Trump has left people astonished with his knowledge of space and the universe and has become a laughing stock yet again after he claimed that the moon is a part of Mars.

In a tweet on Friday, he said: “For all of the money we are spending, NASA should NOT be talking about going to the Moon – We did that 50 years ago. They should be focused on the much bigger things we are doing, including Mars (of which the Moon is a part), Defence and Science.”

Trump’s remarks came a day after NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told USA Today that US astronauts would not be able to make a lunar landing by 2024 unless Trump administration’s $1.6 billion budget increase request is not approved by the US Congress.

As soon as Trump tweeted, people from around the world started trolling him with witty one-liners, jokes and memes.

“Sigh! His dad must have paid his way through astronomy class too!” wrote American long-distance runner Ryan Hill.

“Trump’s knowledge on this matter is one small step for man, one giant leap backwards for mankind,” said Emmy-nominated filmmaker Jeremy Newberger.

“Based on the President’s track record here on Earth, I don’t think NASA needs his input on how to handle space,” tweeted Sam Vinograd, national security analyst at CNN.

Earlier in May, Trump, who is infamous for making controversial statements, war threats and spelling errors on his Twitter handle, confessed that he uses Twitter as a “typewriter”.

Later, Twitter Co-founder, Ev Williams called Trump “master” of the platform, arguing the potential negative effects of the President’s tweets on the country’s political discourse are “trivial compared to the effect of the broader media”.
