Donald Trump mocks PM Modi for funding library in Afghanistan

United States President Donald Trump on Wednesday took a jibe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi for funding a library in Afghanistan by suggesting that it was of no use.
Trump, who was addressing his first Cabinet meeting of the year, said, “I could give you an example where I get along very well with India and Prime Minister Modi. But he is constantly telling me, he built a library in Afghanistan. Library! That’s like five hours of what we spend (in Afghanistan).”
“And he (Modi) tells me. He is very smart. We are supposed to say, oh thank you for the library. Don’t know who’s using it (the library) in Afghanistan. But it’s one of those things. I don’t like being taken advantage of,” he added.
