US President Donald Trump has suggested that Washington and New Delhi could strike a long-anticipated trade deal during his upcoming visit to India, but a new pact is far from a foregone conclusion.

“He’s a friend of mine, he’s a great gentleman and I look forward to going to India. So we’ll be going at the end of the month,” President Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, referring to his Indian counterpart Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Asked about the prospective trade deal in the works, Trump appeared somewhat optimistic, stating: “They want to do something and we’ll see… if we can make the right deal, we’ll do it.”
