America’s Desi Trump Card
Donald Trump may have lost the Wisconsin state primary, but IndianAmerican professor Amar Dev Amar still firmly believes that the Republican frontrunner Donald Trump will become the next US president. Amar, who went to the US as a student almost four decades ago, and is now a business management professor at Seton Hall University in New Jersey, is the president of the Indian-Americans for Trump 2016, a political action committee that was registered early this year with the aim of garnering support for Trump as the next president of America.
“Over my 44 years of observing, studying, writing and engaging in American economic and political systems, I have not come across any president or presidential candidate who has such a good grasp of America’s problems, a vision to solve them, and the power to deliver solutions,” says Amar, who feels that it’s time for the Indian American community to show strong support for Trump as presidential candidate.
Amar contested for the US Congress from New Jersey’s District 7 in 2008 as a Republican candidate himself. He now feels that Trump, too, has a very similar political agenda to what he had back then. But it’s not just personal regard for Trump. Amar finds a great deal of support for him among the IndianAmericans community, the reason why he formed the Indian-Americans for Trump 2016. The management guru and professor sees a lot of value in Trump’s views that America’s problems are due to the decline of its economy, caused by an uncontrolled and perforated border. “By addressing trade problems, we will be able to revive our economy, bring back jobs, build the tax base and recirculate money in the economic system,” Amar said. Amar is also a strong supporter of Trump’s extreme immigration policy.
