FILE- In this Feb. 19, 2020, file photo, a monkey sits on a hoarding welcoming U.S. President Donald Trump ahead of his visit to Ahmedabad, India. A festive mood has enveloped Ahmedabad in India’s northwestern state of Gujarat ahead of Prime Minister Narendra Modi's meeting Monday with U.S. President Donald Trump, whom he's promised millions of adoring fans. The rally in Modi's home state may help replace his association with deadly anti-Muslim riots in 2002 that landed him with a U.S. travel ban. It may also distract Indians, at least temporarily, from a slumping economy and ongoing protests over a citizenship law that excludes Muslims, but also risks reopening old wounds.
