This recent visit of Imran Khan was an explosion over the internet. As Khan was stepping on US soil, #khanmeetstrump was top trending not only in Pakistan or US, but across the globe. Maybe Trump’s controversial personality, new Pakistani leader and Pakistan’s strategic placement had a great role in this.
