Rahul Gandhi arrived in San Francisco as a part of a week-long trip to the USA on 30, May 2023. Meanwhile, a screenshot purportedly showing a tweet by President Biden mentioning that “We welcome Rahul Gandhi to the USA. But just because India has become free from open defecation under the leadership of Narendra Modi, it doesn’t mean that you can come to my country to shit in open whenever you want” is viral on Twitter. This screenshot is widely shared with the caption that President Biden is angry with Rahul Gandhi. Some of the posts with such a claim can be seen here and here.

But we ended up finding no such tweet on the Twitter page in any of the snapshots stored on these dates.
