Trump arrives in Japan for the start of Asia trip
U.S. President Donald Trump arrived in Japan on Sunday (November 5) defending his tough rhetoric on North Korea, saying discussions on Pyongyang will figure prominently in talks with other Asian leaders as tensions rise over its missile and nuclear tests.
Trump, at the start of a 12-day Asian trip, is looking to present a united front with Japan against North Korea through meetings with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe amid heightened tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear and missile tests.
Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Asia, Trump said a decision would be made soon on whether to add the reclusive state to a list of state sponsors of terrorism.
Trump greeted waiting supporters and signed autographs before speaking to U.S. troops stationed in Japan.
