Dear Friend,

This year Democracy Now! is celebrating our 25th anniversary—that's 25 years of bringing you fearless, independent reporting. Since our very first broadcast in 1996, Democracy Now! has refused to take government or corporate funding, because nothing is more important to us than our editorial independence. But that means we rely on you, our audience, for support. Please donate today in honor of our 25th anniversary and help us stay on air for another 25 years. We can't do our work without you. Right now, a generous donor will even DOUBLE your gift, which means it’ll go twice as far! This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a donation, please do so today. Thank you and remember, wearing a mask is an act of love.

Trump Touts Defense Deal, Praises Modi at Massive Indian Rally

HeadlineFeb 24, 2020

President Trump arrived in India today, where he appeared at a massive rally with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in Gujarat. A reported 100,000 people packed a massive cricket stadium where Trump touted a $3.5 billion U.S.-India defense deal, as he delivered a speech under the banner of “Namaste Trump.” Some rally goers reportedly started to leave the event because his remarks were not being translated. Trump also claimed, “India is a country that proudly embraces freedom, liberty, individual rights,” despite the brutal government crackdown on Muslim Indians as it enacts its controversial new citizenship law and the ongoing repression in Kashmir.
