Modi said after talks with Trump that they have "agreed to start negotiations on a big trade deal". "We make the best".

Though Trump is the sixth US president who has visited India, only second to visit the Mughal-era wonder.

Accompanied by First Lady Melania, his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, the US president spent a hectic day in two Indian cities - Ahmedabad in Gujarat and Agra in northern state of Uttar Pradesh. "For this reason, since taking office, my administration is working in a very positive way with Pakistan to crack down on terrorist organisations and militants which operate on the Pakistani border", said Trump.

Donald Trump's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump had expressed her delight after visiting the Sabarmati Ashram on Monday afternoon. While Patel can't vote since he's a green card holder, the outlet said his wife and three adult children are all US citizens and voted for Trump: "I'm feeling proud".

Trump's motorcade rolled slowly from the airport to a former home of independence leader Mohandas Gandhi.
