A group of people in America, all Hindus, are supporting Donald Trump for President.

But going by the handle@USAHindus4Trump, this group (with 72 Followers on Twitter and 292 on Facebook) has started a hashtag called #HindusForTrump to explain why they support him.

Hindus are the most educated religious group in America (PEW Research). Could that be why so many USA Hindus support Trump?

The political action committee (PAC) "Indian-Americans For Trump 2016" was launched on 21st January 2016 by four Indian Americans or as they put it "members of the American Hindu community".

The PAC said in a statement - “On realising that the agenda of Donald J Trump for President 2016 is focused on reviving the American economy, rightly bringing America on the world stage, defeating terrorism and establishing peace through strength; many Indian-Americans believe that he is the best hope for America and the right candidate to be the next president of the United States.”
