Trump claims Modi unhappy over China developments as he readies punitive action against Beijing – Times of India

WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump said he had spoken to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi and claimed the latter is “not in a good mood about what is going on with China,” even as Washington indicated that punitive action against Beijing would be announced on Friday.
