He posted: “So much for the friendship with Trump Senior.
“Junior has placed India firmly with @JoeBiden & @KamalaHarris though interestingly Jr. believes J&K & the NorthEast go against the rest of India & will vote Trump.
“Someone needs to take his colouring pencils away.”
On the map, conflict-struck areas in the northeast of Indian and Jammu and Kashmir as well as Ladakh have been shaded in red.

The US blasted China for its aggressive moves along the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh.
During a press conference, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: “Chinese Communist Party is no friend to democracy.

India and China have been in a standoff in the Ladakh region which has led to escalations of conflict.
Earlier this year, at least 20 Indian soldiers were killed in a clash with the Chinese military in the region.
It was the first deadly clash in the border area in at least 45 years.
Shashi Tharoor, Indian Congress party leader and member of parliament, also responded to Donald Trump Jr.’s map.
He referenced Prime Minister Nerendra Modi’s relationship with the US president.
He tweeted: “The price of Namo’s bromance: Kashmir & the NorthEast cut off from the rest of India, &the whole “filthy” place relegated by Don Jr to the realm of hostiles, along with China&Mexico.
“So much for the crores spent on obsequious serenading stadium events!”
Mr Tharoor was making a reference to President Trump’s previous comments in which he described India’s air as “filthy”.
But Abdul Basit, former Pakistan High Commissioner to India, said Mr Trump Jr.’s map was “encouraging”.
He tweeted: “Good. Jammu and Kashmir is shown as part of Pakistan. Very encouraging.”
