FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above picture and found it to be FAKE.

On putting the picture through Reverse Image Search, we found the original picture of President Trump in a report dated September 19, 2017, in which there is NO tilak or the saffron scarf.

The picture was originally taken by an Associated Press (AP) photographer on September 06, 2017, when President Trump arrived at Bismarck Municipal Airport in Bismarck, North Dakota, United States.

Even in the above FAKE vs REAL collage, it is clear that the original picture was manipulated using photo editing software.

Hence, it can safely be said that the above claim and the photograph in circulation, is fake.
