Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited Trump to be the chief guest at the Republic Day celebrations next year. Meanwhile, when asked if Trump would come to the celebrations or would schedule his visit for another time, Wells said that the White House will decide to take into account "both the domestic commitments he has here in the US as well as overseas". Moreover, Wells pointed to the steady stream of US officials who visit India as a symbol of the close ties between the two countries at the official level.

Reports added that Modi first met Trump in Washington in 2017, and also at other multilateral meetings. A military parade is the center of the Republic Day Celebrations and Trump has been a fan of such parades and wants the US to have one, too. Further, at Trump's suggestion a parade was scheduled for November on Veterans Day, which honours former servicemen, and this year it would coincide with the centenary of the conclusion of the First World War. Moreover, after having never having held such a parade, the Defence Department postponed it to possibly next year.
