Former U.S. President Donald Trump is meeting with another foreign leader while he's in New York for his criminal hush money trial.

Only possibly one American leader would speak truth to power to Aso Taro about his corporacratic wealth and how it was built of the back of slave labor and exploitation and present time corrupt crony capitalism.

Bernie Sanders.

Only a few Japanese leaders would speak truth to power to DJT about a family legacy of racist gentrification and about he has long benefited from a two-tier justice system that benefits the rich and powerful.

Taro Yamamoto of the Reiwa shinsengumi or the leaders of the JCP.

This meeting is just a Legion of Doom and having this oligarch meetup is a recipe for nefarious dealings, especially giving Trump's ongoing legal proceedings.

We have the wrong people on the world stage doing what they do best. Lie, manipulate, greed their dirty little ways. Why don't we have better choices of leaders around the world?

I think former PM Aso should be very careful if planning to meet . . . .with former Pres. Trump . . . . Trump has been involved in a number of criminal trials . . . and has a great number of associates . . . .

. . . better to communicate at distance . . . .

two failed former leaders at the exit. perfect photo.

and the judge is not sending trump to jail yet. trump is baiting him to do it so he can be a martyr. his goose is already cooked after pecker’s testimony as the first witness.

the lawyers risk sanctions, though.

Indeed! It helps if you keep people illiterate (USA) and submissive (Japan), but it's amazing how far the bad guys get without any accountability.

He’s a highly respected man in Japan and beyond,”

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Trump told reporters he'd gotten to know Aso “through our very dear friend, Shinzo,” whom he praised as “one of my favorite people in the world.

Birds of a feather.

Already preparing for a Trump victory. Smart man. Trump's re election will def help Japan' yen recover.

-39 ( +8 / -47 )

Like Trump or not, the US was not involved in any wars during his tenure and the US economy was better. Biden has gotten the US involved in many wars (Ukraine-Russia, Israel-Gaza, etc) and has dramatically skyrocketed the costs of living in the US.

-13 ( +15 / -28 )

So what does Aso hope for??

14 ( +16 / -2 )

Man,that dreaded hat hAs made another appearance.

-7 ( +13 / -20 )

Not as many Trump tariffs this time I would guess.

So what does Aso hope for??

-2 ( +6 / -8 )

“When I was President, I spent a good deal of time telling Japan and China, in particular, you can’t do that,” he wrote on his Truth Social platform. “It sounds good to stupid people, but it is a disaster for our manufacturers and others.”

"When my good friend Taroo Asu was Prime Minister of Japan, look at this sharp-dressed man, the economy of Japan was never better. With the weak yen and Asoo's leadership the people of Japan never were so winning, they almost got tired of winning.

Like here in America, which I made great again,before the big steal, Mr. Aso had to suffer a witch hunt by the woke mob, the leftists who hate when everyone is prosperous. "

Trump was close with Shinzo Abe, the former Japanese prime minister who was assassinated in 2022, and their relationship underscored the premium Trump puts on personal ties when it comes to foreign affairs.

Telling that the leaders of nations that have strong democratic socialist traditions and egalitarian, broad based prosperity were almost universally repulsed by Trump.

Guaranteed Trump, who admits to still being in the head of a 7-year-old (in his book), couldn't stop laughing at 'Aso's name.

19 ( +25 / -6 )

Wonder what Don is up to.....

Smart move. Japan has to be ready for any situation. Besides, it doesn’t cost anything.

-12 ( +9 / -21 )

Two highly dysfunctional so-called leaders … another meaningless photo opportunity!

6 ( +17 / -11 )

Notice all of Shinzo's old Japanese partners in crime are attempting to raise the crashing public support of the LDP. They are trying to create a facade that the old LDP is still relevant and necessary.

1) Shinzo's widow going to Taiwan.

2) Aso visiting Trump in NY.

That will not distract from the shrinkflation or the weak yen! Is Aso going to announce a run for the PM position?

9 ( +19 / -10 )

Two half-wits and still less than the sum of the parts.

4 ( +23 / -19 )

Meanwhile, everyplace else is burning down from all the inflation. The banks are preventing Americans and Canadians from moving their money around. Crime has gone through the roof. The homeless are high-jacking peoples homes. 1.9 Million people were laid off in just December and millions more got laid off after the new year and they are claiming jobs increased when most of them were federal jobs. Tech is eating itself and they just mentioned the FTC is banning non-competes. I don't see any of this helping anyone.

-10 ( +9 / -19 )

Two proper leaders. This photo gives me hope that Japan can be great again.

Only possibly one American leader would speak truth to power to Aso Taro about his corporacratic wealth and how it was built of the back of slave labor and exploitation and present time corrupt crony capitalism.

Certainly wouldn't be Biden or any other radical socialist sycophant.

Bernie Sanders. 

No one gives a twig about Bernie, really...

Only a few Japanese leaders would speak truth to power to DJT about a family legacy of racist gentrification

No racism

and about he has long benefited from a two-tier justice system that benefits the rich and powerful. 

More like political opponents.

Taro Yamamoto of the Reiwa shinsengumi or the leaders of the JCP.

Great for who? The rich who are already doing better than okay and not the people who actually need help? Japan is safer than the States for sure but unless he is ending poverty and being a direct cause for decrease in crime or even increasing the birth rate you can't really say he's making anything "great"

“Leaders from around the world know that with President Trump we had a safer, more peaceful world,”

Exactly.

Under Trump, the U.S. and the world were far safer, far more peaceful, and far more prosperous than under Biden.

No one can rationally, logically, or factually dispute that.

No one.

wrong almost every metric on the economy is better under Biden, markets 25% higher GDP growth is higher, Biden created far more jobs than Trump, I can show you that stats if you dont want to believe. Maga always conveniently forget the worst recession in 70yrs, 20million lost jobs and a record 7.8 trillion debt under Trump.

His only legislative achievement in 4yrs, 2yrs when Trump held the house senate and presidency, was a trillion tax cut fore the rich thats it. even republicans now admit Biden get far more done than their party of do nothing.

It is a strange political pairing.

It also easy to assume Donald Trump, Taro Aso reflects a meeting of minds.

Hardly, I suggest privately Taro Aso would give Donald Trump the time of day.

Aso is a hardcore revisionist.

Donald Trump wants to financially leverage the U.S.-Japan Security Alliance.

Taro Aso meeting is to tread water politically doff the hat to ascertain a future for Japan, of a second Trump Presidency.

I have. and will contline to contend that Taro Aso is clandestinely, with others pulling the strings of government.

Trump complained about the U.S. dollar reaching a new high against the Japanese yen, calling it “a total disaster for the United States.”

Yeah.....that must really "suck" for the US..........

But in honestly, that's pretty funny. Because none of the LDP thinks the same way. In fact, they clearly couldn't care any less about it.

They are just laughing it up and spending the tax payer's yen like it's going out of style.

Hey Trump, let's make a trade. You keep ASO, and Japan get's a decent Yen again. Sound good?

Wrong, not one single one where thousands of troops had to deploy and hundreds of soldiers coming back in body bags.

No.

https://apnews.com/article/biden-trump-immigration-economy-inflation-abortion-21b95914866c2af3a1e7af8e302dbe27

Same.

Maga always conveniently forget the worst recession in 70yrs, 20million lost jobs and a record 7.8 trillion debt under Trump.

Well, what the Democrats do is they don’t factor in retirees, baby boomers, people that are disabled, people that can’t make a good living, because a lot of people are not hiring some more people are working at home, so more people move in back with their parents, Thomas less demand for certain industries, and with the introduction of more self check services, there is no need to employ more people in many areas, these are the things that Democrats forget to add in financial reports.

His only legislative achievement in 4yrs, 2yrs when Trump held the house senate and presidency, was a trillion tax cut fore the rich thats it.

And guess what, a lot of those rich people are leaving areas, because they have the money for payroll to grow businesses, and if their tax into oblivion, they have the ability to move out of the market, so sincerely, job providers, they should get a break, if they don’t…

Ongoing is not the same as starting a new war, no new war was started in those 4 years.

name me one new war Biden has started. Ill wait.

We have our troops in Russia, but still, we still have a lot of troops in Syria and Iraq that they were bombed, not too long ago, not to mention the devastating and disastrous withdrawal of Afghanistan and it looks like Taiwan is about to go off soon, so politically with NATO with the Asian Pacific, with the Middle East and the Israeli Palestinian conflict, we are all involved in it, and like Biden says the book with the president, OK, so he’s not getting an argument from me.

Biden actually ended a war, something Trump couldnt achieve

Yes, and ask all those parents whose children were killed from the king that died, asked her parents, asked the special forces that went in after to get our people out that he left stranded there, again, the buck stops with him.

It was Trump who put the troops into Syria.  Trump's decision to send troops to protect oil fields in Syria.

Fewer troops have been killed under Biden than previous presidents.

Very good question, that.

We didn’t have body bags coming back, not to mention the conditions that laid down to the Taliban if any American soldiers were harmed. by left who can forget the images of people falling from the plane and 13 soldiers killed.

The article makes no mention of the number of troops killed under various presidents.

"Some 65 American service members died in combat while serving Trump during his time in the White House office from January 2017 to January 2021. There were fatalities every year of his presidency, according to the "hostile action" records compiled by the Defense Casualty Analysis System (DCAS), which is maintained by a government defense agency."

Biden has not finished a term.

"During 2022, by which time the U.S. had left Afghanistan, there was not a single death caused by "hostile action," according to DCAS. However, 13 were killed in one deadly bombing the year before, during the messy withdrawal from the country."

@Quo Primum did you say safer? How many American's lost their lives to other Americans during that time whether it be hate crimes and or shootings against specific groups of people? And how many people were involved in trying to storm a government facility? Biden hasn't encouraged anyone to do that. But Trump and his mannerism of speaking makes his followers think it's okay to be like that.

‘Failed’ can be a relative term I suppose, but the key word is ‘leaders’.

As leaders, both got thrashed in elections after short tenures. I suppose you could make a case that they aren’t perfectly comparable as we are comparing battered leaders in different systems, but they were both given hidings nonetheless.

Being put over the knee by the opposition at the ballot box after short tenures can be regarded as failure for leaders. In the US, one-term Presidents aren’t generally seen as successful ( Bush 1, Carter ) and Aso led the LDP into a a very unusual hiding.

Hard to make a case they were successful leaders.

In Trump’s case they did wake up, there were a lot of other choices to Trump, but no one that half of the country liked, especially rural suburban blue collar Americans, the establishment on the other hand appeal more to the conservatives that are sometimes well-off financially or are ok with the Washington political swamp. Half of America are American first patriots and are not globalist like the establishment Republicans. As far as Biden goes, he’s it or you get Kamala, the White House doesn’t want that and neither the rest of the Democrat party.

That is a meaningless statement without actual death figures and why they happened.

But since you want to know, since 9/11 the US has killed more than 500,000 civilians.

So when you add it all up, it’s worse because this current President did not heed the warning from his senior military leaders, I think he took a page out of his old boss’s book.
