Trump uses Indian accent to mock outsourced call centre

Washington, April 23 (IANS) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump adopted a fake accent to punctuate the punchline of a story mocking a credit card company worker in India.

Trump on Friday tailored his pitch to the citizens of Delaware state, praising its status as a tax shelter and at one point sharing a story about calling his credit card company to find out whether it employed people in India, the Politico reported.

At a campaign event in Wilmington — a hub for the nation’s credit card industry — Trump said he once called a credit card call centre, suspecting staffers were working from India.

“I said to the person, ‘Where are you from?’ I wasn’t really checking on my card. I was actually finding out if this was true,” Trump said.

“So I called up under the guise I’m checking on my card, said, Where are you from? ‘We are from India.’ ‘Oh, great. That’s wonderful. Thank you very much,'” he said, speaking briefly in an Indian accent before gesturing like he was hanging up a phone.

Trump did his mocking impression in broken English as he lamented call centre employees being based overseas.

“You want to find out about your credit card, guess what you are talking to a person from India,” he told the crowd. “How the hell does that work?”

Trump, known for his offensive commentaries on Muslims, Mexicans, women and other groups, has put his foot firmly in his mouth several times on the campaign trail.

Friday was not the first time the billionaire made fun of foreign accents.

At a rally in Iowa last August, the Queens-born tycoon critiqued Chinese and Japanese business partners with a mocking impression in broken English.

  1. Trump-train is going to hit everyone – It’s just a matter of time!! This is nothing compared to what he has said about other countries and individuals. He doesn’t play by any rules. He has been hitting China and Mexico for a long time. The geniuses in politically-correct media are scratching every part in their body trying to figure out how to stop him!!! LOL LOL

  2. Here is the actual video clip of so called ‘mocking’!! As you can see, he DID NOT mock India or anyone else except US leadership!! This goes onto show how media tries to spin everything and deceive readers when it doesn’t like a specific individual or party. Media does the same thing with Shree Narendra Modiji also!!! Sad!!

    • RampaNNA, before he throws out all illegals, I strongly suggest that you ask your overseer – Buffalo Bill’a to buy you a cheap ticket to Mangalooru. Don’t you know that your Murudeshwara statues are waiting for you?

  3. “….. As you can see, he DID NOT mock India or anyone else except US leadership!!” – Murudu RamPai

    Nope! He didn’t sir! He NEVER insults a soul! He ONLY insults Mexico, China, Muslims, Indians, women and JUST about everybody else.

    And oh, from what can be seen hereabouts, the ONLY Rampa who mocks India is some Yumreeki Rampa who did ‘padhrad’ from India. And he misses his country so much that he NEVER misses a chance to call it a ‘3rd world country/mindset’ etc. Maybe Manu’s varna is to be blamed! Maybe ‘Somarasa’?

    Well, it may well be a 3rd world country. SO, WHAT does that make our Sreemaaaana PM’ji? 😉 😉

  4. Clearly, Joker Pinto is struggling to understand. The video clip I posted should have answered all the questions for any normal person with average IQ. Then again, we re dealing with a genius from Beef Club. LOL
