A wall and seven layers of security: How India is preparing for Donald Trump’s visit

The foreign ministry, the police and security forces, and the government of the western Indian state of Gujarat, where Trump kickstarts his Feb. 24-25 visit, are only a few of the agencies working in tandem. The Gujarat government alone is expected to spend Rs85 crore ($11.82 million) on arrangements for only a few hours that Trump will spend in Ahmedabad. One of the items the government has splurged may even be a favourite Trump theme.
