Funny, progressives have a strong reflex to the negative. Makes me sick to read some of the comments on Japan Today. How about just sitting back during the first inning and be amazed at how 6 months ago WWW 3 was a distinct possibility, and now there is a framework for peace and denuclearization.

I've noticed a lot of pro and anti-Trump statements going in all kinds of directions except one. No one is disagreeing with him on the main issue. The US has been completely taken advantage of and you all know it. You might not like how he is turning the tables back in our favor or at least somewhat on a level playing field but none of you can say the U.S. hasn't been the trading chump for the world for the last few decades. We've footed European defense against Russia and we've footed the bill for NATO and the UN. And in return, you've been able to enjoy relative peace while you mock us as "warmongers". Now it's time to hold your own and I think you're about to find out how badly you've been fleeced by your own governments who should have been taking care of you vs relying on the U.S. All those benefits you've been giving away to migrants, time to find out where that money was actually coming from.

USA needs to be in the wilderness for a while. Their people are too far gone to be reasoned with and even though they have many social democratic values keep electing the worst of the worst into office. The rest of the world needs to move on from such a toxic relationship
I was thinking the exact same thing about Europe.

Trump is the President of the U.S. Makes sense his America first policy. Shouldn't the other leaders of their countries feel the same?

Well "lying Comey" was fired and Trump IS the President so...............Morally unfit, and Crooked Hillary? Now there is a lady with very high morals! So sad that such a tall man had to stoop so low just so sell a book.

Syrians are claiming that they intercepted 71 missiles, including all 12 that were directed at the Al-Dumayr military airport outside of Damascus.
"The Pentagon insisted that no missiles were intercepted by Syrian defences and that the raids were “precise and overwhelming” while claiming the Syrian air defences remained “largely ineffective”.
I would say most of the world understands how the Russian and Syrian troll bots are out in full force now.

Old people never spend, they save and have all the money.
I kind of agree with that statement in Japan. I have been living here along time and though some older people spend money, my experience is a large majority of Japanese oldsters just love to hoard their money, never spend and most importantly never invest in the youth of Japan. The will all die with their money, the government will take it all and their children will be left with nothing. A vicious cycle indeed.

Where Idiots can vote into power an Idiot who just keeps on being idiotic
I think a lot of people voted for him because if they knew Hillary Clinton was a bigger idiot. So we lost both ways.

Who cares if Trump got laid by a porn star 12 years ago? Trump didn't sign the agreement, he can easily say had no clue about it. Falls all on his attorney. And what penalty will that be? Nadda. This is all over hype and trying to spike CNN ratings. lose

Well, so much for the political elite fixing the 30 year stalemate with the North. Funny how a NON politician has the keys to peace and stability in the region. At least the two are speaking their real mind to each other.

13 Russians and 62.9 million extremely ignorant/naive Trump voters.
13 Russians and and the most brainwashed left wing media core in the history of the U.S.A.

It only points out a potential conflict of interest and possible politically motivated surveillance of an American citizen, which is not good.
My point exactly. Trump will be vindicated because this is only the tip of the iceberg. We have to wait for more information to come, and it will come.

Its credibility as a national institution is shot.
That is correct and I might add Obamas legacy is shot too.

Just wait until all the foreigners come to Japan during the Olympics and become unhinged and start berating Japanese smokers while they are trying to eat their ¥20,000 sushi or teppanyaki course thinking for that price point they can enjoy their meal in a smoke free environment. The sh_t will hit the fan and the Governments policy will change overnight because the NO SMOKING restaurants will suddenly become more popular than the traditional smoking establishments.

Trump is doing alright. Admittedly I'm not the fan I was at first, but still better than what we could have had.
Amen on that brother!

What a sad and pathetic year it has been. I hope that my fellow countrymen remain strong against the scourge of greed and hatred long enough to see this travesty through to its conclusion.
Most of your fellow countrymen don't know what the hell your talking about. Give it a rest already, it's 2018 and America is great again! Happy New Year to all!
