Senior administration officials told The Washington Post that Trump has been known to “affect an Indian accent” to quote Modi, who last year condemned U.S. activity in Afghanistan during a private meeting with Trump.

The U.S. Army is currently preparing to increase its presence in Afghanistan by as many as 1,000 more troops, according to the Post. Trump has already added at least 5,500 service members since taking office.

The Post's report about Trump using an accent to imitate Modi comes on the tails of his reported “shithole countries” remark during a private meeting with lawmakers to refer to immigration from Haiti, El Salvador and some African nations.
