A salesclerk at an electronics store in Tokyo stands in front of TVs Wednesday, showing Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump in a news program about Super Tuesday. The U.S. election is garnering a lot of attention from Japanese media. Speaking in the Diet on Wednesday, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Japan could work with whomever is elected president in November.

Imagine if his name was still from Donald Drumpf.

Given Trump's background as a reality TV star, it's not surprising he gets so much free publicity from his friends in the main stream media.

@PTownsend you obviously do not know what you are talking about. The media hates Trump but he gives them ratings so they begrudgingly have to show him. They lament constantly that Trump gets on TV spending no money while the other candidates have to spend millions to get 30 seconds of air time.

If you think the media likes Trump you are sadly mistaken.

Trump is ratings goldmine, that's as about the extent of the love they have for Trump, if they could, they'd cut him off, but they would be cutting their throats as well.

What comes out of Trump's mouth makes even Hillary look good. And that takes some real doing.

Parents should shield their children from that scary image.

Trump and Hillary are both serial liars and the question in the general election will be which one will come off as a more likable seller of potions. My bet is on Trump, who as a full-blown narcissist, has spend his life learning how to pull people's emotional strings. Though his message is disgusting, there is something seductive in the way he talks. They call him a con-artist, but he probably can delude himself, so he has a strange authenticity. Hillary says all the reasonable things, but she just grinds on us and you sense she is all too aware of her manipulations. The Bern would be able to put up a better fight against the Drumpfer as he is the real deal, even if, like the rest of them, he makes promises he won't be able to fulfill in the grand charade of US federal politics.

Both Trump & Hillary want to pressure Japan & China to have stronger Yen & Yuan respectively. It's going to be tough for Asian economies.

While making predictions for US in article - " Astrological probable alerts for US in year 2016" - published last year on 15 October 2015 in online magazine thesop.org, one of the predictions made by this Vedic astrology writer to happen in US in 2016 is that US glory will be very much talked about and be in focus. So here Donald .J. Trump , aspirant for Republican Party nomination in race to US Presidential election 2016 is telling the American people that he is the only one who will make America great again. Hillary Clinton is also reported to have referred to the theme but in her own way in modified form. And in this way it can be inferred that the theme has come to central stage of mass appeal and as such , can be distinguished with mere mentioning of the theme in past elections. So prediction of this writer published at thesop.org/story/20151015/astrological-probable-alerts-for-us-in-year-2016.html has come precisely accurate. The theme seems to be fitting into charismatic personality and style of Trump for an impact while it is electors’ choice to weigh things and take appropriate decision.

It's his real name - Google it, it's all over the web right now. https://www.google.co.nz/searchq=drumpt&gws_rd=cr&ei=PcPXVrrPG8TJ0gTBq4OAAQ#q=donald+drumpf&tbm=nws

Besides, you are joking right - Drumpt is the king of childish name calling.

"Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said Japan could work with whomever is elected president in November".

It is true that you could work with whomever is elected as president BUT you could work a lot BETTER and more EFFICIENTLY if the leader is not Trump. Trump has said multiple times that he is going to 'crack down on trades with Asian partners (that includes you Japan)'. Economists says that Trump's policies could lead to a Trade war and result in the US to lose a significant amount of money which will effect the Japanese economy.

I m Canadian and I shudder at the thought of Trump as president.

Don't turn your back to the problem! Change the channel and save others! He craves our attention!

@Aggie 12:15PM JST - Drumpf has based his entire campaign on child-like name calling !

Drumpf was the original family name before it was changed to Trump. It's perfect because it loses all the grandeur of Trump. John Oliver did a take-down of Drumpf recently, check it out
