Happy Diwali: Donald Trump Wishes Jains, Buddhists, Sikhs. Forgets Hindus

Trump, immediately after initially not including Hindus in his first Diwali tweet, deleted it and reposted another tweet, that still left out Hindus.

“Today, we gathered for Diwali, a holiday observed by Buddhists, Sikhs, and Jains throughout the United States & around the world. Hundreds of millions of people have gathered with family & friends to light the Diya and to mark the beginning of a New Year,” tweeted US President Donald Trump, a week after Diwali.

Apart from getting the date wrong, Trump also forgot to mention the key demographic that celebrates Diwali — Hindus. What is more bizarre still is that Trump, immediately after initially not including Hindus in his first Diwali tweet, deleted it and reposted another tweet, that still left out Hindus. This despite the fact that a lot of American Indians — especially Hindus — hold some key offices in the Trump administration: Krishna R Urs, Manisha Singh, Neil Chatterjee, Raj Shah, Neomi Rao, Ajit Pai and more.

Trumps tweet is likely to lose him some Indian fans. Members of the Hindu Sena, who celebrate Trump’s birthday with cake, havans and life-size photos of the US President, and share common interests like Islamophobia and xenophobia, would not be too please to learn that their beloved foreign leader makes such gaffes.

Trump’s tweet has already earned some backlash and mockery.
