Posted in: Suga, Biden agree to strengthen Japan-U.S. alliance in phone talks See in context

Fourice: It is not yet official that Biden won as the legal president. Still Trump has two months in the office, why is Japan already talking with Biden?

Then Japanese PM Abe met with then President-elect Trump in New York in November 2016. So it would seem this is not so unusual?

Would have to agree with Stilwell's comments, except perhaps for the "one China" remark.

@azayamagori

Yeah, I also remember Edano after Fukushima. He was either incredibly uninformed or had some serious problems with the truth.

I agree. Looks like it's not too safe in Donald Trump's America.

Re: Floyd's poor health and intoxicants were also contributing factors.

I am not sure about the intoxicants, but prior health conditions don't count for much in US criminal law, where you take your victim as you find him. See the "eggshell rule," applicable in tort and criminal law which states that "the unexpected frailty of the injured person is not a valid defense to the seriousness of any injury caused to them."
