Senior administration officials told The Washington Post that Trump “has been known” to imitate an Indian accent and Modi himself.
However, Trump’s view on the United States continued involvement in Afghanistan was swayed by something Modi told him in the Oval Office last year: “Never has a country given so much away for so little in return.”
The president apparently believed Modi’s comment about the U.S. in Afghanistan was “proof that the rest of the world viewed the United States as being duped and taken advantage of” in the country, according to the Post.
Trump’s mockery of Modi’s accent isn’t the first time he’s tried to mimic another the vernacular of another country.
In October, amid widespread devastation following Hurricane Maria, the president tried to use a Spanish accent when discussing Puerto Rico during a Hispanic Heritage Month event at the White House.

“We’re also praying for the people of Puerto Rico, we love Puerto Rico,” he said mimicking an accent. “Puerto Rico. And we also love Puerto Rico,” saying it in a normal voice.
