Jindal suspends his presidential campaign

Washington, (PTI): Having failed to make the cut as Republican presidential candidate, Indian-American Bobby Jindal has announced to suspend his campaign to the White House noting “this is not his time”.

“This is not my time, so I am suspending my campaign for President,” Jindal said in a statement yesterday that surprised the American political pundits.

“I cannot tell you what an honour it has been to run for President of the United States of America. My parents came to this country 45 years ago searching for freedom and a chance,” he said.

Going forward, the Louisiana Governor said he believes that the Republicans have to be the party of growth and it can never stop being the party that believes in opportunity.

“We cannot settle for The Left’s view of envy and division. We have to be the party that says everyone in this country – no matter the circumstances of their birth or who their parents are – can succeed in America,” he said.

“One of the things I will do is go back to work at the think tank I started a few years ago – where I will be outlining a blueprint for making this the American century.

“We must show the way forward on growing our economy and winning the war against terror, and especially defeating radical Islam,” Jindal said.

“I realise that our country is off on the wrong track right now. Everyone knows that, but don’t forget, this is still the greatest country in the history of the world – and every single one of us should start every day by thanking God that we are fortunate enough to be US citizens,” he added.

Jindal, 44, often polled under one per cent and his campaign, reportedly, suffered financial pressure. He has now become the third Republican to opt out of the 2016 presidential race.

“Now is the time for all those Americans who still believe in freedom and American exceptionalism to stand up and defend it. The idea of America – the idea that my parents came here for almost a half a century ago – that idea is slipping away from us. Freedom is under assault from both outside our borders and from within. We must act now, we do not have a moment to spare,” Jindal said.

  1. He does not deserve to be American president, because of his cheap speech we can make it out. BTW he hates to be called as Indian Origin American, he forgot his Indian origin within 45 years of his parents migration. Tomorrow if America kicks him out definitely he will return only to India nowhere else. Mr. Jindal try to be proud of your Indian origin. then ppl will support, always rememrb you root eventhoug u become a king of any country that show ur humility and thanfulness. Dont thank for being American, first thank GOD for being a humble human-being.

  2. “My parents came to this country 45 years ago…” – Report quoting someone who dropped out of race.

    Always careful not to mention where his parents came from or his cultural background, this guy somehow was under the impression that he would be rewarded for his self-hating theatrics by his party base. In that process he forgot an important thing – He is in a wrong party with wrong skin color!! You can change your name and even your religion – No matter how much you ‘act’ differently, the party base will always look at you as an ‘outsider’ who doesn’t understand ‘their’ culture!! Same goes with Nikky Healy. If you want proof, listen to some of the comments by conservative goddess Ann Coulter on these individuals!! This is a good lesson for some of the self-haters on this forum as well.

    Oh well, finally a moment of reckoning for him!! Let’s wish him all the best.
