Donald Trump's association with India stretches back to the 1990s

He's been lashing out at numerous countries during his campaign, but not India so far

New Delhi CNN  — 

Most Indians – about a sixth of the world’s population – have never heard of Donald Trump. But that may be about to change, at least a little.

If you walk past any roadside magazine stand here in New Delhi you may see a reddish-orange face peering out at you, printed prominently on the fronts of Indian publications.

Just recently, two of India’s top English-language weeklies ran cover stories on the U.S. elections.

Outlook magazine’s cover “Donald Trump: American Nightmare” had a caricature of a grimacing, enraged Trump dominating the full page. “Loud. Brash. Divisive. Insensitive. Xenophobic.” it declared. Open magazine had a blue-tinted Hillary Clinton pitted against a red-colored Donald Trump. “The American Scream,” blared the cover.
