US President-elect Donald Trump and his vice president-elect Mike Pence have spoken over phone with nearly 30 key world leaders, including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, after the historic victory of their Republican party in the recently-held American general elections. Modi is one of the first few leaders that the 70-year-old Trump spoke with, Trump’s transition team said on Wednesday. Some of the other global leaders are Chinese President Xi Jinping, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Francois Hollande, Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, it said.


Trump has also spoken with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key, and Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull. The list of world leaders was released hours after Trump said in a tweet that he had spoken to several world leaders. Trump said he had received and taken calls from many foreign leaders despite what the “failing @nytimes” said. The countries are, Russia, the UK, China, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, and more.

“I am always available to them. @nytimes is just upset that they looked like fools in their coverage of me,” Trump tweeted. Trump won the US presidency on November 9 in a result which shocked many who had expected her to win following favourable opinion polls.
