“Monday was one of the happiest days of my life,” one poll respondent said. “It started out great with Manafort and Gates, and then, bam, out of nowhere, Papadopoulos. I guess I started hoping all days would be like that.”

India and the US have failed to bring out a joint statement under the trade policy forum (TPF) dialogue due to unresolved differences indicating the trade relationship between the two strategic partners may have entered a phase of uncertainty under the Trump administration.
In the first high-profile engagement on trade between the two countries after President Donald Trump won the US presidential elections in November last year, India’s new trade minister Suresh Prabhu visited the US to hold back-to-back annual trade talks under the TPF and commercial dialogue on Thursday and Friday respectively.
