Donald Trump compared Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with Elvis Presley on Tuesday.

Trump said PM Modi was like an "
American-version of Elvis Presley". Just like he did with his own father, Trump appeared to forget that Elvis Presley was an American!

The bizarre statement by the US President came after meeting Modi on the sidelines of 74th summit of United Nations General Assembly in the United States.
"There was a
tremendous spirit in that room and they love this gentleman to my right. They went crazy. It was like Elvis Presley came back."
Trump also said; "I remember India
before was very torn. There was a lot of dissension, fighting & he brought it all together. Like a father would. Maybe he is the Father of India...They love this
gentleman to my right. People went crazy, he is like an American version of Elvis

Yep, that's right.  President Trump said the Indian PM "is LIKE an AMERICAN version of Elvis"... Imagine that, an American version of Elvis! WOW!

Meanwhile, All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) President Asaduddin Owaisi lashed out at Trump for calling Prime Minister Narendra Modi the "father of India".
Owaisi said the US president was ignorant of the history of the country.

"Trump called Modi the Father of the Nation. He is ignorant and he does not know anything about Mahatma Gandhi. He has zero knowledge of India's great past.
One should understand Modi cannot be the father of the nation because you cannot compare Gandhi and Modi. Gandhi made numerous sacrifices for this nation,
he earned it,"
Owaisi told reporters here.

Owaisi, however, said he agreed with Trump when he compared Modi to legendary American performer Elvis Presley.
" However, I agree with Trump on the point that Modi is
like Elvis Presley. As Elvis used to mesmerize people with his songs, Modi also does that when he delivers speeches. I do not want to demean my prime minister by
saying that he is like Elvis Presley,"
he said.
