India stepped up security on Sunday (February 23) ahead of U.S. President Donald Trump’s visit.
The American leader is to see crowds so large that they will make the much ballyhooed turnout for his campaign rallies pale in comparison.
Trump will arrive on Monday (February 24) in Ahmedabad, which is Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s hometown.
There, hundreds of thousands of people are expected to gather to greet Trump for a road show leading to a rally in a cricket stadium with a capacity of over 100,000.
Trump routinely gets the biggest crowds of any candidate in the U.S. presidential race, ranging up to 20,000 or so, and he has been grudgingly admiring of Modi’s ability to get a bigger crowd than him.
After addressing the stadium crowd, Trump and his entourage will travel to Agra for a picturesque to visit the Taj Mahal.
Then it will be on to New Delhi, where he and Modi are to have a day of talks and attend an evening banquet on Tuesday.
The Trumps get back to Washington on Wednesday.
