In Asia, Trump finds more than ever he's among friends

True, but Russia is where Donnie's heart really lies - he's among friends in Asia, but in Russia it's more Master and Poodle...

Sometimes liberals try so hard to believe in something that just isn’t true and that has been disproven, time and time again officially sealed and noted. Lol

But anger still prevails for heaters in they will still try going on bringing up false narratives. The relationship between Japan and America has always been tight and will continue to maintain so.

True, even if Donnie commits some major gaffe or makes a fool of himself during the visit...

Keep your hands off the ladies Donnie....

"Patrick Buchan,..... said Abe served as a global model on how to woo Trump -- making the relationship personal and resolving concerns through private channels."

Because Shinzo Abe is a wise leader who can see the big picture.

Trump has friends, really!

Trump pulled out of the TTP, while his friends went ahead.

Both Russia and China are a big part of Asia and the region. Japan needs a Russian gaspipe and farming products growth in this part of Russia with its rich fertile soil.

"The Europeans, in my opinion, completely mishandled the Trump phenomenon. By responding to his public rhetoric or his Twitter tirades, you only created a vicious circle," Buchan said.

But that's continental europe/euros in a nutshell i.e standoffish, blunt/direct, in your face attitude etc. Don't think they 'mishandled' Trump tbh, they've just adopted a different, more confrontational approach, something you can do when you're the largest economy/trading block in the world.

What works for some may not work for others.

Friends??!!!! Sure.

By the time the man-child leaves Japan, Abe's tongue will be as brown as muck.

Going golfing today? Any chance of rolling for the cameras again?? Tee hee hee.

Asians are smart enough to overwhelm him with insincere flattery, as long as they get what they want.

Golfing is good.

Trump: Yokohama casino wink wink

Abe: Osaka, Wakayama mo douzo!!

Better than working, whichbis why Donny spends more time on the course than in the office.

At the end of his term Trump can boast he played more golf than any president in history. Someday there'll be a Trump Abe golf links on one of those Russian owned northern isles.

End the occupation now. Or, if that doesn't appeal - have Japanese bases in Hawaii, Alaska and other strategic locations.

Many of my Chinese and Japanese friends support Trump. They may not all like him personally but see the big picture. Counterfeit products and stealing Tech is entrenched in the Chinese culture. Born from being constantly behind Japan and the West.

People are respectful and friendly towards people who are self-confident and stick up for themselves--in this case, a president sticking up for his own country.

At least he's playing golf and not playing with the joystick of an attack drone everyday.

You realize you're contradicting Donny boy himself, who was very clear before he became president that a president should not be golfing.

So which Donny are you going to agree with? And how are you going to deal with the hypcorisy of disagreeing with the other Donny?

I support the Donny that is producing results; i.e., the current POTUS. I couldn't care less about Trump playing golf; anyway, isn't the fantasy of the socialist DNC party a world where we're all on permanent leisure? Talk about hypocrisy! Besides, women and kids in the ME are probably happy Donny's got his hands on a golf club and not the joystick of an attack drone. You guys go ahead with a fine-toothed comb through the trivialities of absurdities.

Easy: unlike your side, my side promotes diverse thoughts and opinions.

Hah, as diverse as 'Mexico will pay for the wall' and 'oh wait, no, we're going to make Americans pay for the wall'.

Very diverse. And very opinionated!

And once again the right runs away with their tail between their legs, because someone has pointed out how their argument falls apart with any inspection whatsoever.

No, it's just incoherent. I felt like a grammar teacher confronted with tremendous confusion that I concluded the wastebasket was easier than a red pen.

Oh, I'm sorry, let me know which of the big words you didn't understand, and I'll be happy to link you to a dictionary.

It's more of a syntax error in terms of logic.

I suppose true logic is making someone pay for something when you said that they wouldn't be paying for it.

Dinner's on me tonight @Noidall! (but bring your wallet just in case)

Sure, things don't always go according to plan

In which case, you go back to the people and ask for a mandate for a new plan. Which Trump did - and the people said no. Congress said no. Judges are saying no. In fact everyone is saying no. And you're calling them demons for not willing to buy a different deal than the one Trump sold them.

what's really at stake here: fiddling about who will pay for dinner, or meeting with clients and getting the job done?

I thought you were the party of fiscal responsibility? Now you're asking why money matters?

If your real goal really was border security, you:

1) Would want to spend the money in an efficient manner, rather than a boondoggle

2) Wouldn't be supporting the party of open borders, who have not only refused to create any immigration legislation, but actively blocked it when bipartisan legislation was introduced.

You pretend like you care about border security, but reality shows you don't.

he lacks the one quality every President should have - empathy and compassion. 

Hahaha, You seem to be in agreement with Putin, Xi, Kim, and Maduro. They all would love a president with more compassion and empathy. Sorry, flower diplomacy doesn't work, and quite frankly, it seems childish.

There's that trickery and intellectual dishonesty again.
