This is bogus. Ndtv is a sensational news media. No one knows what is the cost of his trip because that is not released but it would not be different from other Presidential trips of the past. But whatever the cost, the possible economic returns for US far outweighs the cost of this trip. India is growing at rate of 8%, US growth at its best is about 2%. Think of the opportunities. US business probably salivate at the thought of doing business in India. It is crucial for US to build relationship with developing Asian countries.
I am originally from India and a US citizen. It is sad that partisan politics are having such a devastating effect on people that they criticize every move of the opposite party even if it is for the good of the country.
When are people going to get that it's called Fox ENERTAINMENT News for a reason.
