Peculiar way to make a political statement. The 80% Muslim rural villagers of Marora India are exuberant about the major name change of their village, 'Trump Village.' The 80% Muslim people of India, a Muslim spokeman says, "I do not care if Trump is a Muslim baiter. All I know is he is against Muslims who cause violence and destroy countries. He is the president of a powerful country,” villager Zorauddin told German public broadcaster, Deutsche Welle.

No. But yeah, it does sound as a joke, doesn't it? India's PM Narendra Modi seems to welcome the idea and the ideology behind the USA Presidency of President Trump. It's not official, though. But the symbolic gesture shows a lot.

The director of a sanitation charity in India renamed a village after Donald Trump, but authorities said he had no permission to do so.

The rural village is so remote that they do not have public toilet facilities ( probably no 'state of the art plumbing', too). I don't know what went on BEFORE PM Modi's visit at the WH. WAPO, I guess, is just making up their smear-the-president story. In fact, WAPO just smeared the integrity of these 80%Muslim nation and PM Modi's leadership.

@everwonderwhy If I lived there I would be thinking of the village in terms of its other name instead. Like where I was born is called one name but on the maps its known by another name different alltogether.

@lovinangelsinstead21 I agree. I do not know how the villagers feel-- nostalgic or hopeful-- for their PM's administration's policy on border and national security against terrorism and violence.
