"To see what he's been able to do and I imagine, in this community full of business leaders, you've seen those results yourself. But they're not just benefits for you. They are benefits for everyone around -- the employees that you hire, the businesses who are your suppliers, the beneficiaries. Everyone's winning because of this.
"And that's why I've been such an advocate for this (Donald Trump's vision) because I want to see that winning continue.
"I want to see America maintain its rightful place as the leader of the free world. I want to see them be able to work with their incredible allies, like India to make the world a safer place. To use democracy as a shining beacon of light for everyone to be able to learn from," he said.

Guilfoyle praised Harsh Vardhan Shringla, the Indian Ambassador saying, “ he represents you (Indians) so well and works tirelessly on behalf of your country.”
