Ahead of the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Japan, Trump reportedly said that he is looking forward to speaking with Modi about the recent hike in its already high tariffs against the United States.

Taking to Twitter, Trump said: “I look forward to speaking with Prime Minister Modi about the fact that India, for years having put very high Tariffs against the United States, just recently increased the Tariffs even further. This is unacceptable and the Tariffs must be withdrawn!”

Earlier as well, Trump had expressed his outrage against India’s tariffs, saying even though the country reduced its import tariff on American motorcycles from 100% to 50%, it is still too high and not acceptable to him.

Trump said the United States, under his leadership, is a country that can no longer be fooled. “We’re not the foolish country that does so badly. You look at India, a very good friend of mine, Prime Minister (Narendra) Modi, you take a look at what they’ve done, 100% tax on a motorcycle. We charge them nothing,” Trump was quoted in an interview.

US President in fact called India a ‘tariff king’ and said that it imposes ‘tremendously high’ tariffs on American products.
