US President Donald Trump is known to land in a pool of controversies over his remarks and statements.

The latest one comes in a report that suggests he has imitated PM Modi. 

"According to the Independent, when Modi travelled to the US last year, he supported the decision of sending in more troops to Afghanistan in a bid to tackle terrorism and insurgency," ANI noted. 

Trump reportedly imitated PM Modi stating that the latter said to him, "Never has a country given so much away for so little in return", referring to US' troops in Afghanistan."

The Trump administration and its Indian counterpart have not reacted to the report, however, the US President is often seen talking in other accents, imitating others.  

Trump previously alluded to 'Abki Baar Modi Sarkar' slogan and changed it to 'Abki Baar Trump Sarkar' during his presidential election campaign.
