Well, they got through it, not so sure it was a success.

Comparing both…they must be twins. lol

Of course a big congrats because the US are not the one paying the bills.

Huh, that's disappointing. I quite like Joe Biden. (I'm not American, so I won't get dragged into a childish name-calling thread that goes on for ever - just a heads-up). I guess he has to say something nice to Suga as a matter of politics...

Meaningless, uninformed comment from POTUS. I can only imagine if someone like Andrew Yang were in this position the more informed commentary and policy that would be made.

It's just protocol with an ally. There are far bigger important issues to discuss than the Olympics.

What alternate reality are these people living in?

That dude cannot get elected to anything. What he says is meaningless other than if you want to learn how to go from first place in the polls in the NYC mayor race to finish fourth.

Sour grapes.

The only news accepted on JT is how bad the Olympics was. How much of a failure it was even though the facts prove otherwise.

You've been complaining about the Olympics for months now. It's over. Take a break.

Actually if you were around here, complaining about these Olympics has been going on since 9/7/2013 when Tokyo was awarded these Games.

2013 yes but it peaked when it became clear the Japanese government was favoring advert revenue over its citizens and ignored science which predicted exactly what would happen the last few weeks. That is the Olympics would be a super spreader event which is a fact now.

Ratings in the USA for the gold metal disaster were down 42 percent from Rio. People worldwide knew that holding an huge sporting event in the middle of pandemic was stupid and just did not pay attention at all. Why support a super spreader event?

Ossan is right...this just courtesy lip service. US knows well that Suga is a lame duck PM, Joe,s just being nice.

Exactly!!

From one competent leader to another.

U got to be joking.

Successful for whom?

Not me!

Tried to keep my business alive but lack of vaccines and a pig headed fixation on mone… I mean sports, to the detriment of all else meant that it became impossible to live -I left….

2 ( +4 / -2 )

Agreed! Suga did an amazing job! Props to Suga and Koike.

-6 ( +3 / -9 )

Could any politician have inherited more of a political mess than Suga-san did? But he still has to try to get the vaccine ordeal under control and maybe he will salvage his political future after all. But, if not, he will be a bit like the, in 'normal' times otherwise adequate seawalls of Fukushima

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Successful? Which part?

2 ( +4 / -2 )

This is basically daddy praising his junior... now once the praising is done, its time for the obedient son to increase that financial support to the USA military...

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Biden is such an awesome president. Who couldn't help but be inspired by this towering figure of strength and decency?

0 ( +0 / -0 )
