Trump, Abe Agree to Disagree on Trade

Trump, Abe Agree to Disagree on Trade”

US President Donald Trump said Japan would be able to shoot down a North Korean ballistic missile after an arms deal with the US.

President Donald Trump on Sunday said he expects to meet with President Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation next week to discuss confronting the threat from North Korea, part of a 12-day, five-country tour through Asia that started with his arrival in Japan and is very likely to be dominated by discussions about trade and Pyongyang's nuclear program.

Mr Trump was referencing a meeting he had with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in NY in November a year ago, just over a week after his surprise election win.

In his public appearances so far, Trump has sought to cast himself as a highly successful chief executive, touting the U.S. economy while taking credit for a streak of hiring by American companies.

Prime Minister Abe said he agreed with the President's approach 100%. It has also acquired F-35 Lightning II fighter jets and Osprey transport helicopters. China? Other? * Is the United States an indispensable economic partner or should Asia become more self-sufficient?

But it was too late, Trump said, Abe was already in the air. "In that process we will be buying more from the USA, that is what I am thinking".

Unfortunately, Japan's China relationship is set to become more problematic under the next Abe administration thanks in no small part to his best buddy Trump's visit to the region. "I think the food is good. We also appreciate the sacrifice of dedicated civilians who keep this base going and take care of our military and their precious loved ones". "And you'll be second", the president said.

(Japanese) "Japan consistently supports the position of President Trump when he says that all options are on the table".

Mr Trump's Asian tour moves on to South Korea today. Vice President Mike Pence and Japan's Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso are working behind the scenes to come to an agreement. In another CNN Town-Hall style interview, Trump had generously praised the Big Mac and had even indulged in McDonald's burger and fries to celebrate winning the Republican presidential nomination. "Your devotion, prowess, and expertise make you the most fearsome fighting force in the history of our world", Trump said.

"For more than 20 some years, the global community attempted dialogue with North Korea", he said.

"So my relationship with Shinzo got off to quite a rocky start because I never ran for office, and here I am", Trump told the foreign diplomats.
