Washington: With just two weeks left for the US Presidential elections, Republican nominee Donald Trump’s campaign has come up with a unique ad to woo Hindu Americans.

According to reports, Donald Trump's new ad borrows Prime Minister Narendra Modi's winning catchphrase in the 2014 national election – Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar.

The advertisement begins by wishing Hindus 'Happy Diwali.'

"Ab Ki Baar, Trump Sarkaar" - the Republican nominee then pronounces slowly before the ad fades to the text: "Great for America, Great for US-India relationship."

The advertisement is an initiative of the Republican Hindu Coalition, the group that organised a fundraiser addressed by Trump in New Jersey over a week ago.

"We love the Hindus and we love India," the controversial candidate had declared in the meeting on October 16. He said he had 'big respect' for Hindus and India-US would be 'best friends' if he came to power.
