Ahead of US Presidential elections which are slated to be held on November 3, US President's son Donald Trump Jr said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and US President Donald Trump have an "incredible" relationship.

While speaking to new agency ANI, Trump Jr said: "I think the relationship of my father President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is incredible. You know to what I saw the reception that my father received in India, a few months ago it was absolutely overwhelming."

Trump Jr also said that the two leaders understand that India and America are together in a "big fight against socialism and communism" spreading all over the world.

"And I think they understand that two democracies like that are together in a big fight against socialism and communism spreading all over the world so it's been an honour to watch it. I love that they have a great relationship and a powerful relationship that will benefit both of our countries going into the future," he added.

Trump Jr was taking part in an event celebrating the success of his book "Liberal Privilege". The event was organised exclusively for the Indian American community in New York on Sunday evening.

While hitting out at Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, Trump Jr said that Biden is not good for India as he could be soft on China.

"We have to understand the threat of China and no one knows that probably better than Indian-Americans," Trump Jr, told a select group of supporters from the community at the event in Long Island, New York.

In his book "Liberal Privilege", he has documented allegations of corruption against 77-year-old Joe Biden's family, particularly against his son Hunter Biden. "When you look at our opponents in this race. you think the Chinese gave Hunter Biden USD 1.5 billion . because he was a great businessman, or because they knew the Bidens could be bought, and therefore soft on China," he said.

Trump Jr was referring to the latest allegations of corruption against the Biden family as revealed by The New York Post. "Therefore, (Joe Biden is) bad for India," he said in his address at the meet and greet event along with Kimberly Guilfoyle, who is leading the fund-raising efforts of Trump's re-election campaign.
