The prime minister and all 80-90 accompanying staff will receive two doses of a coronavirus vaccine before the trip

That's a huge surprise. Let me guess, Koizumi Jr. will also be part of the delegation.

I guess Suga and his entourage will be exempted from the required PCR test to enter the U.S. (I’m sure they will have been vaccinated, but the jury is still out on whether vaccinated people can be silent spreaders of the virus.)

Good for Suga, going on this trip!

Maybe he can learn something from POTUS Biden!

Only in case he is willing (and able) to learn something.

When Suga arrives, Biden will ask who he is then and why he came. Then he will forget his name at a press conference and leave without answering questions.

Why is Biden not visiting Japan first???

A Biden-Suga summit? Should be something to watch—two old, mostly ineffectual men who mostly just rubber stamp what their parties out in front of them.

If they’re lucky, Biden will even remember Suga‘s name and what country he’s from.

Why bother he will be gone by October.

I guarantee this will not happen. But you already knew that.

Why is Biden not visiting Japan first??? North Korea isn't lobbing bombs over the US, China is not trying to claim Hawaii. There's your answer!!

Why is Biden not visiting Japan first???

The same reason why they let Japanese people travel out of the country for vacation but they won't allow foreigners in the country.

When they meet for handshaking, the room’s flair will be the first time filled with a three-digit IQ....(if there’s also a photographer at the place) rofl

I'm sure one of his agenda items will be sending the US athletes to the Olympics.

Will Suga still be Prime Minister in April?

Wonder what Suga thinks of Biden. Surely he must know Biden is not all there.

Biden has been reduced to taking credit for Trump’s Operation Warp Speed and allowing the spread of the virus through all the illegal immigrants he is bringing into the U.S.

Very inspiring.

Vaccine or no vaccine, two weeks quarantine both ways. Otherwise quarantine rules are no longer valid.
