Trump, During Visit To Japan, Talks Trade And North Korea”

Trump kicked off his first Asian tour on Sunday in Japan.

Just after becoming president, Trump was not very interested in North Korea, but Abe gave him detailed explanations about the issue at the Japan-U.S. summit meeting in February. The interview was broadcast as a letter by the US Defense Department emerged that said the only way to locate and secure all of North Korea's nuclear weapons sites would be via ground invasion.

It was not the first time Trump has left the first lady behind, and may explain why she did not break into a smile until the party moved to a reception room for a chat that, as protocol dictates, was out of earshot of reporters.

On other matters pertinent to the two countries and the region, Trump said of his talks with Abe, "We are in the midst of having very major discussions on many subjects".

Trump, as he told it, wasn't aware of the protocol against president-elects meeting with world leaders. With Shinzo Abe's re-election on a platform of increasing militarization of Japan, some deals, or at least proposed deals, to buy USA defense hardware must be on the cards. "That's a good thing, not a bad thing", Trump said Sunday.

Offering toasts at a state dinner on President Trump's final evening in Japan before moving on to South Korea, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe heralded the success of "golf diplomacy" with Trump, while the president, in turn, shared a story about how their relationship got off to a "rocky start".

"The United States has suffered massive trade deficits with Japan for many, many years, nearly 70 billion (U.S. dollars) annually", Trump told the business leaders at the US ambassador's residence in Tokyo. From Seoul, Trump travels to Beijing to meet his counterpart Xi Jinping who has solidified his grip on power after being handed a second term.

Abe told the same news conference that Japan backed Trump's stance that "all options" are on the table when it comes to North Korea, saying the two countries were "100 percent" together on the issue. Most commented saying, "Trump can't even feed fish right". "We've just heard the very sad stories about family members - daughters, wives, brothers uncles, fathers - it's a very, very sad number of stories that we've heard", Trump said Trump and first lady Melania Trump stood with almost two dozen relatives, some of whom held photos of the missing.

The sale of military equipment to Japan is one way the Trump administration hopes to narrow the $69 billion trade gap between the two countries. Trump complained Monday that Japan had been "winning" for decades and rebuked the current relationship, saying the trade deals were "not fair and not open". "I had the impression that the president knows this issue well and has sympathy for us", he said.

The measures were Seoul's first unilateral sanctions under Moon, who took office in May vowing a peaceful resolution to the nuclear standoff and declared a willingness to visit Pyongyang under "the right circumstances".

Japan hasn't ruled out the sort of bilateral partnership with the U.S. that Trump seeks, but is spending most of its energy on a process known as "TPP 11" - an attempt to keep the framework intact without the U.S. Abe is also reluctant to put Japan's highly protected agriculture sector further at risk in a bilateral deal. He said they were able to "carry out in depth discussion, at times touching on various hard issues".

President Donald Trump's first trip to Asia began with a round of golf, a custom cap and a hamburger of American beef.

The low-key start was a prelude to the formal talks planned in Tokyo on Monday.
