Trump, Japanese leader cap visit with golf outing

Trump's withdrawal from TPP trade deal is hurting U.S. exports to Japan

Trump will become the first foreign leader to greet the new emperor of Japan, Naruhito, when he travels to the close United States ally on May 25 to 28.

Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at a White House meeting on Friday agreed to accelerate new negotiations for a bilateral trade pact.

Trump is scheduled to visit Japan in May shortly after the installation of new Emperor Naruhito.

Mr. Trump said they may attend a sumo wrestling match during the visit.

Speaking to reporters with Abe at the White House, Trump said the two leaders plan to talk about a variety of security and economic issues, including "missiles and rockets and everything else".

"We welcome the fact that for the time being a no-deal Brexit is avoided", Abe said, and expressed hope that the Brexit process can proceed smoothly, with the European Union and Britain "gathering their wisdom to overcome frustration".

Luis Suarez: "Anxiety" cost Liverpool the Premier League in 2014
In 14 matches between 1 December and 23 February, Huddersfield picked up just one point, that in a goalless draw against Cardiff. If they lose all their remaining fixtures, they will set a new record for defeats in a single Premier League campaign.

Washington has been pressing Japan to eliminate tariffs on USA agricultural products, while at the same time calling on Japanese automakers to cut back on exports in favour of boosting production at their plants in the United States. For his part, Abe raised the issue of existing US tariffs on its cars and highlighted the growing number of jobs created in the U.S.by Japan's investment.

After the meeting, Abe, Trump and their families will have dinner, an administration official said. Maybe by the time I'm over there, maybe we sign it over there. I appreciated President Putin's statement yesterday.

"I said, 'Gee I don't know if I can make it. Let me ask you a question".

"I think a lot will be accomplished", Efe news quoted Trump as saying to reporters at the Oval Office on Friday.

"The problem is that both of those things require the respective legislatures to act - the Diet in Japan and Congress in the U.S. And that's not easy at any time", he said.

"A mother", she replied, followed by "a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend, the first lady of the United States, caring, compassionate, strong, independent, very detail-oriented, and"-she smiled-"staying true to herself". But it's moving along very nicely, we'll see what happens", he added".
