With President Trump visiting India, Google Trends have revealed a common question is on a lot of American's minds:

"What is India?"

Searches for this heartbreakingly dumb question spiked pretty noticeably as Trump took his trip to the south-Asian country, along with the slightly more understandable:

Google keeps track of search rates and releases them at Google Trends, revealing a pretty clear spike in "Where is India?" as Trump made his visit.
