Days before his maiden visit to India, Donald Trump on Saturday made yet another reference to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s claims that he was number 1 on the social media platform, followed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Taking to Twitter, Trump said, “Great honour, I think? Mark Zuckerberg recently stated that “Donald J. Trump is Number 1 on Facebook. Number 2 is Prime Minister Modi of India.” Actually, I am going to India in two weeks. Looking forward to it!”
According to media reports, in an interview with CNBC during the World Economic Summit in Davos earlier, Trump had said, “I am No.1 on Facebook; you know who’s No. 2? Modi of India.” The US President added that this information was shared with him by Zuckerberg when the two met for dinner in 2019.
The US President will be in India on February 24 and 25 during which he is expected to visit Delhi and Ahmedabad.
