The US elections outcome did come as a surprise. Contrary to most pre-election polls and expert analysis, Donald Trump went on to become the 45th President of the US. Trump had a highly controversial road to the campaign. He came across as inward looking, aggressive and ruthless with a focus on making America great again. But the bottom-line is that a vast majority of Americans simply loved Trump and his brash style. Interestingly, Trump has had the support of many Indians based in America and Trump himself has been largely sympathetic towards India’s cause. Barring the visa issues, the election of Trump has been broadly positive for the Indian economy.
