To Represent Indian and Hindu Americans, Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar attends President Trump’s Republican Nomination Acceptance Speech at the request of The White House alongside The First Family, WH advisors, Trump inner circle of friends, Cabinet Secretaries, Governors, Senators, Congressmen and Other Political Leaders.
On August 27th, 2020, Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar and RHC’s Executive Director Kayo Anderson attended President Donald J Trump’s August 27th, 2020 “South Lawn” Republican nomination acceptance speech at the request of Trump/Pence 2020 Campaign and Republican National Committee due to Kumar’s support of the President and his influence within the Indian and Hindu American communities. He was joined by other highly-respected Trump loyalists – most of which were Senior WH officials, Cabinet Secretaries, Trump’s inner circle friends, Governors, Senators, Congressman and their families.
It became almost a reunion as Kumar was able to spend time with allies such as Kellyanne Conway, Senior most Strategist and Spokesperson of POTUS and his 2016 Campaign Manager, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin who headed the 2016 Hindu American campaign, Congressman Steve Scalise Republican Whip in the House of Representatives, Senator Lindsey Graham, Congressman Joe Wilson, “The Great One” Mark Levine and many more.
“I was honored to attend the President’s acceptance at the White House – it was truly a historic and exclusive event. Because of Covid, my face-to-face (aside from Zoom) meetings have been minimal, so it was great to catch up in person with many of my very good friends.”
– Shalabh “Shalli” Kumar
The event was the culmination of a weeklong Republican Convention, highlighted by a 70-min speech by President Trump where he laid out his second term agenda and drastically differentiated himself from his Democrat opposition. In a plea to the American people the President expounded upon what another four years of a Trump presidency would look like.
The RHC is co-chaired by Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Its goal is to provide a single unified platform to build a strong, effective and respected Hindu-American voice in Washington and across the country. The RHC seeks to become a unique bridge between the Hindu-American community and Republican Party Leaders; promoting the social, economic, political, cultural, religious, and spiritual interests of Hindus. Additionally, they pursue the best/relentless efforts to make the 21st Century to be an Indo-American Century through an exponential increase in bilateral trade between India and the US and a strategic alliance between the two countries at all levels. It was founded in 2015 under the leadership of Speaker Newt Gingrich, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, five other senators and dozens of Congressmen. RHC gave “Ab Ki Baar Trump Sarkar” to the world in 2016 with 1.2 Billion views, hosted a Hindu rally with Trump, 3 weeks before the election, and was responsible for delivering 65% of Hindu American vote to Trump for the first time in the history of the United States of America.
