Ted Cruz:

“Today is a celebration,” Cruz said. “Our nations have interests that are intertwined. We share a history. We share cultures. We share language. We share values. India is the largest democracy on the face of the earth and America is proud to be your friend.”

CNN:

Before taking the stage, Trump offered up some bigly knowledge on the recent flooding in Texas and again, ignored Climate Change. He also spoke about his ‘beautiful’ conversation with the Ukrainian president.
