Casting shades of Joe Biden, Republican front-runner Donald Trump used a fake Indian accent on the campaign trail Friday while speaking at a rally in Delaware.
Trump said he called his credit card company to find out if the call center employees are from India.
“I called up under the guise I’m checking on my card and I said, ‘Where are you from?'” the real estate tycoon said.
“We are from India,” Trump answered himself, using a fake Indian accent to impersonate a credit card representative.
“Oh great, that’s wonderful. Thank you very much, that’s all I needed,” he said while pretending to hang up an imaginary phone.

Trump’s comments are reminiscent of Vice President Joe Biden’s gaffe in 2006 — in a misguided effort to pander to an Indian-American voter, Biden said, “You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent.”
The Democrat took a lot of grief over the comment and had to later explain himself, saying “it was meant as a compliment.”
