International sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik welcomed Donald Trump to India with two sand sculptures that he created on the Puri beach in Odisha. The US President, along with First Lady Melania Trump, his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, landed in Ahmedabad around noon today for their two-day trip to India.
“Swagatam,” reads Sudarsan Pattnaik’s message on his sand art that features Donald Trump alongside the flags of the US and India. “My Sand art with message #SwagatamTrump at Puri beach in Odisha. We are excited for your first visit to India. It will definitely strengthen Indo-US relationship,” Sudarsan said in the caption of his post.
