110,000 People Pack Stadium to See President Trump and First Lady Melania In India

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump stopped by the Taj Mahal Monday evening, capping off the first day of their India tour with a sunset visit to the world’s most famous monument to love.

They held hands as they posed for photographers and spent a few minutes staring at the white marble tomb as the sun started to dip below the horizon.  

President Trump called the Taj Mahal 'incredible' while Melania Trump said it was 'beautiful'

‘It’s incredible, truly incredible,’ Trump said. ‘Really incredible, an incredible place.’

Melania also weighed in: ‘Lovely, beautiful,’ she said. 

The couple signed the guest book and walked through the gardens as part of their tour of the tomb, built by a 16th century emperor for his deceased wife.

‘Taj Mahal inspires awe, a timeless testament to the rich and diverse beauty of Indian culture! Thank you, India,’ the president wrote in the guest book. Melania Trump signed her name under her husband’s. 

POTUS and FLOTUS were given a framed photo of themselves in front of the monument when they returned to Air Force One to leave Agra for New Delhi, where they will spend the night.  

The sunset trip to India’s most famous location came after the Trumps’ spent the day with Narendra Modi in his home state of Ahmedabad, where the president and prime minister got a raucous welcome when they entered the world’s largest cricket stadium.

The 110,000 stadium was filled to capacity and Trump acknowledged and thanked the massive crowd when he addressed the Indian people. 

The stadium, which was filled with capacity saw people sitting in the sun head out as the two leaders wrapped up their remarks

‘America loves India. America respects India. And America will always be faithful and loyal friends to the Indian people,’ the president said to cheers. 

‘You have done a great honor to the American people. Melania, my family, we will always remember this remarkable hospitality,’ he said. 

He later told reporters it was a ‘fantastic event.’

‘I thought it was fantastic,’ he said on his way to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal. ‘They worked really hard.’ 

President Trump received a huge welcome when he touched down in India Monday morning – with thousands of Indians lining the streets cheering on his motorcade, guards on camels standing by, and native dancers in bright costumes moving to live music and the beat of the drum.
