New Delhi: Chicago-based Indian American industrialist and the founder of the Republican Hindu Coalition Shalabh Kumar has rejected the reports claiming that he was lobbying for the post of next US envoy to India.

In an interview with The Times of India, Kumar said that he was also a victim of "fake news", a term frequently used by the US president Donald Trump to castigate his critics in the US media.

Kumar told TOI, "Fake news and fake media are a growing problem. President Trump and Steve Bannon (the president's chief strategist) have spoken about it often. This year, President Trump will also boycott the White House Correspondents' dinner."

The Ambala-born Kumar -- one of the prominent Donald Trump supporters and the chief architect of Trump's outreach to the Hindu-American community -- was claimed to have lobbied for the post by the Washington post on February 22.
