According to The Wire, Trump said that he has been promised a crowd of five to seven million people in attendance watching him make way from the airport to the ground.
“He (Modi) said we will have millions and millions of people. My only problem is that last night we probably had 40 or 50,000 people… I’m not going to feel so good… There will be five to seven million people just from the airport to the new stadium (Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad),” Trump was quoted as saying by The Wire.
“And you know (it) is the largest stadium in the world. He’s (Modi) building it now. It’s almost complete and it’s the largest in the world,” he added.
