DID THAT REALLY HAPPEN?

How much do you know about current events in India and the U.S.? Try this short quiz!

1. After President Trump was heard praising ketchup— ”I love ketchup”—a White House staffer revealed that the president was actually praising the House Intelligence Committee lawyer who drafted the secret memo that Trump released: Kashyap Patel.

2. Hundreds of Indian-Americans marched outside the White House to show their support for a merit-based immigration system, some displaying slogans such as “Trump loves Hindus” and “Trump loves India.”

3. Two Republican senators introduced a bill that would greatly expand the number of new H-1B visas allotted each year and eliminate the per-country cap for permanent residency.

4. Amitabh Bachchan threatened to quit Twitter after his follower count dropped from 33 million to 32.9 million.

 

 

(2, 3, and 4 really happened.)
