In #Pakistan, Govt & pundits shouldn't make too much of #Trump appearance at #HowdyModi. It's a circus for #Indian PM, endorsing @realDonaldTrump for a 2nd term while the pro-#India lobby in DC works with anti-#Trump base, & hoping to keep him away from #Kashmir if possible @AQpk
PM #Modi has this in mind while trying to appease #Trump at #HowdyModi: #American restrictions on I.T. visa abuse by #Indian immigrants (aka 'Skilled Immig'), ending #India oil imports from #Iran, jeopardizing #Indian interests in #Afghanistan, & Trump rehabilitating #Pakistan
#Trump turning the screws on #India on trade tariffs, forcing end to oil import from #Iran & forcing India to buy from #USA/#KSA/#GCC, talking to #Pakistan on #Afghanistan, & restricting immigration from India, are things that worry #NewDelhi deeply. Watching #ImranKhan in....
Watching a #Pakistani PM @ImranKhanPTI 'perform' to a packed arena in #WashingtonDC in July was a shocker of gigantic proportions for #Modi, & having #Trump mention #Kashmir 4-5 times unhinged #NewDelhi types. This #HowdyModi circus is a good way of trying to hope to soften Trump
Don't be too impressed by #Modi clutching #Trump's hand at #HowdyModi. The pro-#India DC lobby is hand-in-glove with pro-#Iran lobbyists & #Democrats to see if Trump can be pushed back a little or dislodged. Hopefully #Trump2020 managers are aware of this dynamic.
#India diplomacy is known for holding your hand and concealing a dagger. So it's a good thing Pres @realDonaldTrump is taking no chances and is demanding a price from #Modi upfront

Far away from #HowdyModi & #Houston, PM #ImranKhan is busy in meeting top #Trump advisers. #Pakistan benefits from the international bad press that #Modi gets on #Kashmir humanitarian & military tensions. Pak never had it better but it needs to play...
#Pakistan needs to play the game & not shy away. Pak should hope for good #USIndia ties so #Trump can have a leverage on #Kashmir. The Pakistani challenge is to stay engaged with #USA in #Afghanistan, likely help #POTUS win, & use interests/diplomacy to nudge India to peace.
With the failed Moon mission and now this #HowdyModi show, #Modi is putting up a circus to turn around some of the bad international press & political heat he faced, including from #UNSC, because of his actions in #Kashmir. & #Trump is just happy to see the #Indian PM try hard.
In #Afghanistan, #Pakistan should stand solidly with #USA in exchange for tangible benefits. An #American defeat will be bad for #Trump, but more importantly Pak will face the combined force of India & its regional allies on the western Pakistani border. en.dailypakistan.com.pk/opinion/does-p…
#Trump is playing great innings on #India #Pakistan #Afghanistan. He always liked large crowds, big shows; enjoying watching #Modi spend $big$ to please the #US president, incl removing tariffs on US produce. First base for Modi. Third base for America.
At least #Modi tried his best to copy #ImranKhan's successful gig in #WashingtonDC. Looks like this time the #Indian PM was not cleared for an event in the #USA capital.
#India's lobbyists in #USA who are backed by #Modi are actually supporting anti-#Trump lobbies & groups because Trump made forced India to end buying #Iran oil, brought #Pakistan on board in Afg, & forced India to reduce tariffs.
Trump shocks #Modi barely a day after #HowdyModi by dangling the K-word, again:

"#Kashmir mediation offer still on table"

President #Trump on #Pakistan, just a day after #HowdyModi. Looks like #Modi's charm offensive failed to turn Trump into an #Obama:

One example of how President #Trump busted immigration fraud by #India that #Obama allowed to continue despite evidence it was hurting the #USA
