Before the elections, Donald Trump attended a Republican Hindu Coalition’s charity event that was organised to raise funds for Hindu victims of terror in Bangladesh and Kashmir.
For the first time a presidential candidate attended an Indian-American event.

Not only Trump, his family members too visited the temples in both Florida and Virginia; a first time for a presidential campaign.

In the campaign, Trump also released an advertisement saying “Aab Ki Baar Trump Sarkar”, copying the punchline of Modi’s historic 2014 election.

Chairman of Republican Hindu Coalition Shalabh Salli Kumar said, all these had an impact on the voting pattern of the Indian-Americans, who all have been traditionally Democratic supporters.
