While President Donald Trump is touring India, the United States citizens are busy checking these two specific subjects on Google - "What is India?" and "Where is India?" The Google search in the United States, particularly from the region of Indiana and New Jersey about India, has spiked sharply after Trump's maiden visit to India.
However, this is not the first time when Americans displayed their lack of geographical knowledge. Reports suggest last month, US citizens were searching 'where is Iran' amid reports that the US could possibly go on a war against Iran after Tehran attacked Washington's military base in Iraq following the assassination of Iranian commander Qassem Soleimani in Iraq.
