President Donald Trump made history on Monday at Japan’s Imperial Palace where he made history by becoming the first world leader to meet with the new emperor and empress of Japan.

The president and first lady Melania Trump began the formal visit with handshakes and a quiet greeting. Audio was strictly forbidden on the encounter but the president appeared to to thank Emperor Naruhito and Empress Masako for their incredible hospitality.

‘How are you? Thank you very much,’ he mouthed as he approached the imperial couple. Melania Trump told the empress, ‘Nice to meet you.’ The two couples proceeded to speak in hushed tones in the Trumps’ native language.

Emperor Naruhito and his wife studied at Oxford and speak English. In a more formal setting several minutes later, the imperial family spoke to the U.S. president and first lady in Japanese, and the couples conversed through translators.

Melania wore a white Carolina Herrera dress with floral detailing and red stiletto pumps for the welcome ceremony.


The couples stood on a raised platform as the national anthems of both countries were played.

Trump then walked by himself down a red carpet and stood at attention atop another platform, listening to a military band.

He then continued down the red carpet to review Japanese troops while Naruito and both men’s wives held back.

Both Trump and Naruhito greeted a long line of officials in each other’s delegations before everyone went back inside the palace.

Trump’s next stop is Akasaka Palace, the Japanese state guest house, for meetings, a working lunch and joint news conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who participated in the palace ceremony.

The president also will be the guest of honor at an imperial banquet at the palace hosted by the emperor.

The palace visit in the morning was the main event in a feel-good trip that started Saturday and has seen Abe and Trump playing golf, eating out, watching sumo and generally enjoying an all-Japanese weekend.

Dining with Abe and their wives at a typical Tokyo grill restaurant on Sunday, Trump said he “had a great time” and was looking forward to meeting Naruhito, who took the Chrysanthemum Throne only three weeks ago, after his father stepped down in the first abdication in two centuries.

    Another first is coming up for President Trump and the lovely First Lady. For the first time ever, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla has sent him an invitation to tea at their private home, on his visit to England, next month. I know that is going to gripe Obama and Michelle no end. I love it. After the tea with the Prince, the Trumps will have a State Dinner with the Queen. When the liberals say everyone hates our President, my answer is “I don’t thinks so”. Actually I know so. I have friends in several countries and they all have praise for Pres. Trump and his leadership.

    When one of a Few Nations/Countries in the world which severely limits immigration opens its doors to another Nation’s Leader to demonstrate a change in tradition which extends though more than Two millennia; the Choice of the Leadership Couple is very significant.

    POTUS #45 — President Donald J.Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have been recognized by Japan’s Chrysantheum Throne as the Fresh Breeze in a world descending away from the evolution of Human Rights of the Individual.

    The commitments to change the stated during the U.S.A. Federal Election in 2016 bly Mr. President Donald J. Trump have been honoured in the face of the strong & steady opposition of the Establishment and misuse of the Fourth Estate.

    The reference of the Publishing and today’s Media in General, as the Fourth Estate, is alongside the legacy of English Common Law and Freedom of Speech in Western Society. A legacy beginning in another Island nation, the United Kingdom. Built on the concepts of Magna Carta 1215 BCE and steadily opening the Path toward each and every Person in the World as an Individual.

    This Path has faltered throughout, the once referred concepts in the Anglo-Culture(s), passed on during the closure in Colonial Period Mercantilism

    – Ignorance of the U.S.A.as the “Great Experiment” established through the Foundation of the “We the People” in the American Constitution. The Social Contract Foundation between the Average, Ordinary, American Citizen as the Sovereign and the Government(s) the Sovereign allows to function in the best interest of the Individuals.

    -Unmitigated failure of the Founding of Magna Carta by a self-serving United Kingdom to follow through on the Wisdom of the Authority of Majaority of the Average, Ordinary, British Citizen, including the arbitrary setting aside of Legislative Law to accommodate the Establishment Culture & Class. Brexit is now the Foundation of Democracy in the United Kingdom.

    -A barrier of principle and of privilege established in Canada based on Language and a frightened Bureaucracy Class; willing to create a new serfdom class of Canadians tasked with funding a bribery of advantage for a distinct Language Group using temerity and to threaten the self-interest of Canada’s Archaic Privy Council authority to control the Civil Service.

    It is return to Tradition of reverence for the remaining Two most recognized Titular Institutions The British Monarchy and the Chrysantheum Throne extend respect and honour to Mr. President Donald J.Trump and His Administration within a Two-Week Period. Recognition of the steadying of the Ship(s) of State in a constantly changing World of self-interest of Social Contract.

    The British badmouthed the president for ‘arriving on time’ to meet the queen (SHE was 15 min. early). They bashed President Trump for walking on the ‘troop side’ during the military inspection and every other small infraction to their stuffy protocol. The Japanese do it right… they roll out the red carpet, exactly where they want the president to walk. You can see the two leaders talking… I’m sure Emperor Naruhito has filled Trump in on the protocol and then you see the soldier hand gesturing to guide President Trump….. very well done!! Let the critics have a go at that!

    Big difference from Obama’s apologizing to the Japanese for their attacking us at Pearl Harbor . The Japanese are proud people and I think Obama’s actions were probably as embarrassing to them as it was most Americans .
