WEBSTER, Texas (AP) — President Donald Trump is joining a Texas welcome party Sunday for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who's visiting the United States amid trade tensions between the allies.

Hong Kong protesters rally for support at British Consulate

Hong Kong protesters rally for support at British Consulate Hundreds of demonstrators rallied Sunday outside the British Consulate in Hong Kong, stepping up calls for international support in their months-long campaign for democratic reforms in the semi-autonomous Chinese territory. Those gathered waved British flags, sang "God save the Queen" and chanted "U.K. save Hong Kong." With banners declaring "one country, two systems is dead," they repeated calls for Hong Kong's former colonial ruler to ensure the city's autonomy is upheld under agreements made when it ceded power to China in 1997. Demonstrators held similar rallies Sept.

Tens of thousands of Indian Americans were expected at the "Howdy Modi!" rally in Houston.

After arriving in Texas, Trump was briefed on recent flooding in the southeastern part of the state during a visit to a nearby U.S. Coast Guard station.

Hundreds of homes and other buildings in the region, extending eastward from Houston and across the Louisiana border, were damaged by Imelda, as the one-time tropical storm slowly churned across the Gulf region, dumping more than 40 inches (102 centimeters) of rain in some areas.

Authorities blamed the storm for at least five deaths.

"This was a really bad one," Trump said about Imelda. The president spoke with Federal Emergency Management Agency officials at the Coast Guard hangar, and said the federal government was giving Texas money and equipment to help with recovery operations.

Trump says he will hit Iran with new sanctions over Saudi oil attack

Trump says he will hit Iran with new sanctions over Saudi oil attack Trump's administration already slapped Iran with crippling sanctions aimed at driving the country’s oil exports to zero and choking Tehran’s economy. The goal, administration officials say, is to force Iran back to the negotiating table after Trump withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal last year. Trump said that deal was not restrictive enough and he wants a new agreement that would limit Iran’s ballistic missile program and its support for terrorism in the region. I have just instructed the Secretary of the Treasury to substantially increase Sanctions on the country of Iran!— Donald J.

Trump said he accepted the prime minister's invitation to join him in Houston several weeks ago.

"I love India," the president said.

Trump also planned a stop in Ohio to appear with Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, who is in the U.S. on a state visit and was treated to a White House state dinner on Friday. Trump and Morrison will help open an Australian-owned manufacturing plant.

The president was ending the day in New York, where he will participate in the U.N. General Assembly this week.

India and the United States have spent months trying to resolve trade disagreements. In June, the Trump administration accused India of erecting a wide range of trade barriers, and the U.S. ended preferential trade deals with India. In return, India levied higher import duties on some U.S. goods.

Trump and Modi also plan a separate meeting later this week while they are in New York, including discussion of the situation in Kashmir. India's government has stripped the disputed Himalayan region of its semi-autonomy and launched a security crackdown last month.

How Nirav Modi and Mehul Choksi built a diamond empire .
Besides margins, the upside was to see his name even on Madison Avenue.Why did he not, instead, join hands with his other uncle, Chetan Choksi, who was already in Europe? The answer is that there wasn’t much love lost between him and Chetan. Aside from his rapport with Mehul, another factor may have motivated his return. India was at a crossroads after the liberalisation of its economy. The future was wide open and for a young entrepreneurial expatriate who had returned to start with the support of an entrenched player, India was a land of endless opportunities.
