‘You are too popular: Joe Biden’
The ratings came days before United States President Joe Biden told Prime Minister Shri Modi that he was ‘too popular’. “You are demonstrating that democracies matter. You are causing me a real problem. Next month we will have dinner for you in Washington. Everyone in the whole country wants to come. I have run out of tickets. You think I am kidding. Ask my team. I am getting phone calls from people I have never heard of before. Everyone from movie actors to relatives. You are too popular,” and “I should take your autograph.” Biden said.
