Corresponding with Donald Trump's maiden Presidential visit to India, Last Week Tonight Host John, Oliver in the latest episode of his satirical show, spoke about Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his metoric rise from a tea-seller to the Prime Minister of the country.  Describing Modi "a man for whom Trump seems to have a great deal of affection," Oliver said the prime minister has become "one of the most divisive figures in India".

Oliver, also touched upon the controversial citizenship Act introduced by the Modi government that sparked outrage across the country.  "If citizens in the world's largest democracy, home to a billion people, are either wearing masks of Modi or marching in the streets, it seems like tonight it might be worth exploring why that is such a debated topic.

The segment traced Modi's journey from being a tea seller to being re-elected as prime minister. Oliver pointed out how demonetization did "more harm than good"  The other is Trump calling Modi the Father of India stupid at best and dangerous at worst.” The episode was especially targetted  Trump's India visit  making fun of him and his wife, Melania Trump, visiting Taj Mahal--the symbol of love.
