The Japanese leader has said he's worried that North Korean security threats to Japan, including short- and medium-range missiles, may not be discussed, and that Trump will focus on intercontinental ballistic missiles that threaten America.

Medium and short range missiles are a threat to both South Korea and Japan. And North Korea has displayed it's ability to launch them from submarines, meaning they can hit the United States even without ICBMs. So realistically, it makes zero sense to not discuss them.

John Bolton, what a top guy. The man for the job.

He should be in The Hague

No doubt Bolton's first words were, "When we goin' to war?"

"During his second trip to Mar-a-Lago, Abe will be seeking reassurance that Japan's interests won't be overlooked at the Trump-Kim summit."

I just explained yesterday to one of my Japanese colleagues why it's called "Brown-nosing". He frowned at the imagery, but said it was very appropriate.

Yes, in the dock. A truly unhinged, dangerous man.

Good to hear these concerns being raised. Whenever a NK useful idiot gets triggered, it means the right moves are being made haha, so looks like another success

2 fakes news already proven about him. First, he didn’t have to shave that awesome moustache. Second he actually did get rid of 4 problem causing appointees at the security council. Only been there like 4 days now already handling it.

Blacklabel: "2 fakes news already proven about him"

If they were proven, how is it fake?

You guys have bleated out that term so much along with being the ones who perpetuate fake news and alternative facts to begin with that I honestly don't think you know what the word 'fake' means anymore. Same as you have no idea what "democracy" is, or words like "socialism".

proven as fake. We were told he could not keep his mustache and we were told that none of the Obama appointees/sympathizers on the Security Council would be gotten rid of. Both of those were fake news. Its a sad state of affairs that the media feels they have to lie about a mustache.

Chickenhawk with a Walrus mustache.

Black: You're going to need to provide cites to the stories that claim Bolton would have to shave his tache and that Obama appointees would be removed.
