List Of American Presidents who Visited India Up Till Now

The US president Mr. Donalad Trump is coming to India on February 24. His visit has already created a lot of hype not only in India but outside as well. The preparations for his upcoming visit are in full swing. India is quite hopeful about his visit. The main reason is that America is the biggest strategic and business partner in India.

However, there was also a phase when the situation was quite different. At that time, the heart of America was beating for Pakistan. This could be gauged from the fact that the earlier American president Richard Nixon had also threatened during the Indo-Pak war in 1971. Nixon visited India in 1969. However, after him, no American president visited Pakistan for the next 31 years due to his stance.

In the year 2000, president Bill Clinton came to both India and Pakistan. During this time, a new chapter of the Indo-America relationship began to emerge.

Taking a look at the history, the first American president to visit India after independence was Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1959. Since then, 6 American presidents visited India in 61 years. The current American president Mr. Donald Trump will be the seventh.

Here is the list of American presidents who visited India up till now.
