The celebrations included red and blue paper hats, balloons, a life-size poster of Trump in a suit holding a rifle and a cake weighing seven kilos. However, the group observed a minute's silence before cutting the large cake.

They invited journalists to the gathering under a tent decorated for the celebrations.

Sena leader Vishnu Gupta said they were inspired by Trump's tough talk against Islamic militants, and called him the future "king of the United States." They also called him the "saviour of humanity" and "messiah against Islamic terror".
