Republican legislator: US should have made India bulwark against China, but the only thing it has are technical executives

U.S. Republican lawmaker Marjorie Taylor Greene has made a tweet that has attracted a lot of attention. In his tweet, Taylor Greene lamented that West made a mistake in “not keeping India close”. She even called Washington “arrogant.”

All we got were Indian tech bosses. from a culture without respect for free speech. ” That’s what Marjorie Taylor Greene said in her tweet.
