Exports contracted again (for the fifth month), yet the economy apparently expanded for the second successive quarter! If we take the exports out of it the rest of the economy must be absolutely booming.

trumps plan is to hurt Japan's economy to make the USA look better. For trymp it is all about appearance to his base not facts.

This is the results of taking side with trump. Trump has no brothers, he has only greed. Japan should consider to join forces with China & other Asian countries plus Europe for trade because other countries are more appreciative of trade with Japan. 2nd world war is over for 73 years. Japan must stop thinking America is big brother, Japan must think of trade to save the economy or stop producing beyond needs to improve their economy.

As Trump said: " America First", and to hell with the rest. When will the nations of the world get a backbone and start to isolate the US? Seek other trading partners and sanction the US, put an end to US dictatorship and aggression.
