The couple has been married for 40 years with two daughters. Cornyn was among a number of prominent attendees of the mega diaspora event, "Howdy Modi!", in Houston on Sunday. PM Modi addressed a record crowd of 50,000 Indian-Americans, at the event where US President Donald Trump was also in the attendance.
Addressing the Indian diaspora, Trump said under Modi’s leadership the world is witnessing a strong, thriving and sovereign India. "Our relationship today is stronger than ever before and we are grounded in the commitment to democracy," he added.
PM Modi too endorsed Trump for a second term in White House, saying Abki Baar Trump Sarkar in front of nearly 50,000 Indian-Americans at the event.
