President Trump started his trip to Asia by glorifying Japan for being a “crucial ally” but that is not the most noteworthy moment of the day. Trump was surprised with a message that was written inside his flight jacket showing how much he is loved and respected by the military.
Trump went to Yokota Airbase, located on the fringe of Tokyo, he was greeted with cheers from the military members. This was a moment he will remember from his first visit to Japan. President Trump was wearing a bomber jacket when he delivered a speech praising American firepower and appreciating the alliance with Japan.
“Japan is a treasured partner and crucial ally of the United States, and today we thank them for welcoming us and for decades of wonderful friendship between our two nations,” he said.
President Trump’s message to Yakota AFB airmen was earnest, important and welcomed by the military members. But then the president found the message that was written inside his jacket.
The message was, “Presented by the women and men of the 374th Airlift Wing, Yokota Air Base.”
The military presented Trump with a personalized gift showing how much they appreciate and respect him. They took time to make such personal jacked to show how much he is supported and honored by them.
President Trump also talked about North Korea and Kim Jong-un, and even before he arrived Trump used the first opportunity to criticize the North as “a big problem” that must “be solved”.
“There’s been 25 years of total weakness, so we are taking a very much different approach” toward the North, he said to the reporters traveling with him.
President Trump didn’t mention North Korea by name but he called the country the “most fearsome fighting force in the history of our world.”
“Together with our allies, America’s warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No-one – no dictator, no regime, and no nation – should underestimate, ever, American resolve,” President Trump said to the soldiers in Japan.
President Trump and Kim Jong-un often fight on social media, constantly having ego battles. And President Trump is the one winning them, although Jong-un did manage to spark a hashtag when he called Trump “dotard.” Sadly, the hashtag #dotard failed as the conservative used it to mock the prominent Democrats.
The White House implied that Trump will also push American economic interests in Japan but mainly he will address the North Korean issue.
