Opens state visit by needling Japan over trade issues



Posted about 6 hours ago

US President Donald Trump opened a state visit to Japan by needling the country over its trade imbalance with the United States ...

Mr Abe has planned a largely ceremonial, four-day visit to suit Mr Trump's whims and ego. It is part of Mr Abe's charm strategy that some analysts say has spared Japan from the full weight of Mr Trump's trade wrath.

Mr Abe and Mr Trump plan to play golf on Sunday, before Mr Abe gives Mr Trump the chance to present his President's Cup trophy to the winner of a sumo wrestling championship match. The White House said the trophy is nearly 1.5 metres tall and weighs between 27 kilograms and 32kg.

On Monday, Mr Trump will become the first head of state to meet Emperor Naruhito since he ascended to the throne this month ...

4. Why the fuck would Abe invite Trump in the first place?

Clearly a lot of politicians are, I dunno, stupid, venal, pandering, not even sure what words to use.

The fact that Great Britain is allowing him to visit makes me have second thoughts about that country.
