Trump in Japan as Asia trip begins

06 November 2017

A rear admiral on the Joint Staff responded on behalf of the Defence Department, and said the amount of casualties would differ depending on the advance warning and the ability of USA and South Korea forces to counter North Korean attacks.

Mr. Trump, who is on a 12-day trip, is to speak to US and Japanese forces at Yokota air base shortly after arriving in Japan on Sunday and looked to stress the importance of the alliance to regional security. Trump spoke to the press at dinner, explaining that he spent a lot of time talking about North Korea and trade. Only a few days after the election, he was the first foreign leader to fly to NY to talk with Trump. He adds that "I don't think we've ever been closer to Japan than we are right now".

Abe said he and Trump were able to "carry out in depth discussion, at times touching on various hard issues".

When Trump hosted Abe in Palm Beach earlier this year, they played at one of Trump's Florida golf courses.

Like their predecessors, today's service members are fearless warriors who are the last bulwark against threats to the dreams of people in America, Japan and across the world, Trump said.

From the time Marine One landed on the Kasumigaseki Country Club's driving range, Abe rolled out little touches to make Trump feel welcome.

TCS New York City Marathon held Sunday
Behind her, but fading fast, Mary Keitany was chasing history, too: The 35-year-old Kenyan had won this race three times in a row. She had blown away the field here a year ago, winning by a margin (3 minutes 34 seconds) not seen in the women's race since 1980.

After easing into his Asian debut with golf, President Donald Trump sat down for a meal of American beef and tomato sauce with the Japanese president.

The U.S. military comprises the greatest hope for people who desire to live in freedom and harmony, and they are the greatest threat to tyrants and dictators who seek to prey on the innocent, he said.

Both leaders are also expected to hold a joint press conference later during this trip.

Before the game, Trump delivered a speech in which he hailed Japan as a "crucial ally" and warned adversaries not to test America's resolve.

U.S. President Donald Trump heads to Japan on the first stop of his five-nation tour of Asia on Saturday, looking to present a united front with the Japanese against North Korea as tensions run high over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile tests.

Trump told Fox News this week that it was possible he would meet Putin during his Asia trip. The president warned of the consequences of crossing what he called the "most fearsome fighting force in the history of our world".

New Zealand repeats offer to take Australia camp refugees
However, Turnbull declined, saying he preferred to pursue an existing refugee deal negotiated earlier with former U.S. Ms Ardern said New Zealand's offer had not been rejected outright.

He warned that Washington and its allies are prepared to defend freedom and that "no dictator" should underestimate USA resolve.

And while there is worry in the region about Trump's unpredictable response to the threat posed by Kim, Trump made clear he did not intend to tone down his bellicose rhetoric even while in an Asian capital within reach of the North Korea dictator's missiles.

Speaking to reporters on the plane, he announced he would likely be meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin during the tour, as the global community scrambles for a solution to the North Korean crisis.

Trump has rattled some allies with his vow to "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatens the United States and his dismissal of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a "rocket man" on a suicide mission. But speaking to reporters en route to Japan, Trump bristled at the suggestion that he'll be at a disadvantage in his meetings with Xi.
