Trump Hails Japan Ties in Visit papering Over Cracks with Ally (By Bloomberg)

Hello. Everyone! We Japanese invited the great customer this month. President Donald Trump! I think he is a superman to help American people. On the other hand, he is also an almighty salesman. He is trying to sell expensive Defense Weapon to Japan. It is necessary to keep Japan peaceful. But I’m wondering if there is nothing besides buying lots of weapon to be peaceful. Everybody hopes the world without new clear weapon, especially in Hiroshima city. I translated the article by Bloomberg into Japanese.

President Donald Trump rallied U.S. and Japanese troops to wrap up a four-day state visit that focused more on pageantry than resolving deep differences on trade between the long-standing allies.

On a trip where no major agreement was reached, Trump’s statements were persistently at odds with the Japanese. He said he’s aiming to reach a trade deal by August, while Japanese Officials said there was no such talk. After he brushed off North Korean missile tests earlier this month, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called them a violation of United Nations resolutions.

Before flying out on Tuesday, Trump stood with Abe on one of the largest naval ships Japan has built since World War Ⅱ, which is being refitted to house some pricey, U.S-made F-35 stealth fighters.  Japan’s government has said it plans to buy as many as 147 of Lockheed Martin Corp.’s F-35s—including some that cost 15.3 billion yen ($140 million) each.

“The U.S.-Japan alliance has never been stronger,” Trump told sailors and Marines aboard the USS Wasp, an amphibious assault ship at the naval base in Yokosuka, shared by the U.S. and Japan’s Self-Defense Forces. “This remarkable port is the only one in the world where an American naval fleet and an allied naval fleet headquartered side by side, a testament to the ironclad partnership between U.S. and Japanese forces.”

Japan has sought to charm Trump to avoid costly tariffs and retain positive relations with an ally that ensures its security against neighboring China and Norht Korea. At the same time, Trump is looking to reach a deal with Japan quickly as he escalates his trade war with China.

“Firm” Alliance”

“He mentioned about the trade surplus we have with the United States in the press conference but I don’t think he went so far as to hit us, ”Ichiro Fujisaki, Japan’s former ambassador to the U.S. said in an interview with Bloomberg Television. “We need the United States in view of our situation with North Korea and China. The alliance as firm as at any time.”

Trump and Ave also turned the Japanese naval vessel Kaga, where the president praised the F-35 purchase and extolled Abe “for his commitment to improving Japan’s defense capabilities, which also advances the security of the United States of America. “Japan is the largest foreign buyer of the F-35 stealth fighters, considered the most expensive U.S. weapons system.

At 248 meters (813 feet) in length, the Kaga is one of the two largest vessels in Japan’s navy. Both were originally intended as a helicopter carries and will be adapted to accommodate fixed-wing fighter planes when necessary, under a plan approved by Abe’s cabinet last year.

The fighters used are likely to be the F-35B, the short take-off, vertical landing version of the fighter. Defense Minister Takeshi Iwaya has said the planes won’t be permanently stationed aboard the ship.

Abe said it’s the first time that U.S. and Japanese leaders have come together to address troops from both nations. “The Japan-U.S. alliance has become stronger than ever, “Abe said in the visit to Yokosuka, which is the largest overseas U.S. naval installation and home to the nuclear-powered USS Ronald Reagan aircraft carrier.

‘A Great Honor’

Abe has been busy entertaining the U.S. leader with golf, meals and sumo wrestling. Trump on Monday also became the first head of state to meet Japan’s new Emperor Naruhito, who ascended the Chrysanthemum Throne on May 1. He and his wife Melania were the guests of honor at a state dinner on Monday.

Trump, who has chided Japan about its trade surplus with the U.S. has threatened to raise tariffs on the approximately $50 billion worth of cars and auto parts the Asian nation exported to the U.S. annually. He is seeking greater access to the Japanese market for U.S. farmers.
