Trump shifted our parliament to Mumbai last night. The greatest builder ever!

"For all of the people in Mumbai, the attack on the parliament was outrageous and terrible. We will defeat radical Islamic terrorism," he misspoke.

Indians following the event on Twitter had more than a few thoughts about the whole thing.

"Hindus for Trump" is a cheap copy of the great 17th century movement called "Brahmins for Aurangzeb"
