GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump delivers remarks at the Hindus United Against Terror Bollywood/Tollywood Charity Concert. EDISON, NEW JERSEY
EDISON — Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump attended a charity event Saturday hosted by members of the Hindu community in Edison, where he praised India for helping to combat terrorism.
"We can't have prosperity without security, and that is why we appreciate the great friend India has been to the United States in the fight against radical Islamic terrorism," Trump said Saturday night while headlining a charity event held at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center.
Your typical Trump rally this was not.
First there was the ritual Hindu fire, a yagna, which burned in his honor. Then there were the posters, standard Donald J. Trump head shots except for a touch of artistic interpretation: a tilak, the red dot symbolic of the spiritual third eye in Hindu culture, smudged on his forehead.
Not-your-typical Trump rally coming to Philly
The founder of Black Men for Bernie and two Hindu activists are organizing an All American Rally for Trump in Philly.
There’s little love lost between Donald Trump and Philadelphia. The Republican nominee for president has been trashed by two mayors and was formally denounced by City Council.
The Hindu community is calling on a Muslim Dairy Queen franchise owner to take down signs from his Houston-area business that compare Hindus to monkeys.
Mohammad Dar, a 65-year-old Muslim and U.S. citizen from Pakistan, claims he is not prejudiced for installing the signs -- instead saying Hindus are the "racists," mySA.com reported.
