Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe seems to know how to appeal to President Trump as he tries to ease trade tensions between Japan and the U.S. – including a threat of auto tariffs — and continue to receive U.S. support in dealing with North Korea.

On Sunday morning, Abe took Trump to a golf course, where the two leaders played 16 holes before heading to a lunch of cheeseburgers made with American beef.

On the links, Trump and Abe were joined by Japanese professional golfer Isao Aoki, known for his putting technique. Aoki was expected to present Trump with a putter he designed.

The outing seemed to go well, Abe told reporters.

“We were able to exchange our views frankly in a cozy atmosphere. It was wonderful,” Abe said as he returned to his official residence.

Abe tweeted a photo of himself and Trump, taken on the greens.

Trump tweeted that he’d had “Great fun and meeting with Prime Minister @AbeShinzo,” but also continued to stew about domestic politics, claiming that, “Numerous Japanese officials told me that the Democrats would rather see the United States fail than see me or the Republican Party succeed – Death Wish!”

The leaders then attended a sumo wrestling event in the evening, where Trump presented a large trophy to a tournament winner – in a first for a U.S. president.

On Monday, Trump will be the first foreign leader to meet with Japan’s new emperor, Naruhito, since he took the throne May 1.

Then Trump and Abe are expected to get down to business regarding trade matters before ending the state visit with Trump the guest of honor at a banquet hosted by the emperor.

    Trump is making history ever where he goes. The trophy that will be around for ever and always connected to him, being the first leader to meet with the new emperor. And another new thing…Prince Charles and his wife Camilla has issued an invitation to the Trumps for tea at their private home, when he goes to England next month. Firs time ever this has happened. Would love to be at the Obama’s home when they learn of this.

    “Israel will name a town after President Donald Trump as an expression of gratitude for his recognition of its claim of sovereignty over the Golan Heights and also for moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem.” How many presidents have been shown that kind of respect and honor?

    And here lies the problem: “Numerous Japanese officials told me that the Democrats would rather see the United States fail than see me or the Republican Party succeed – Death Wish!”
    It appears it’s not just in the USA that people recognize what the Democrats are doing. They have been sheltered by the liberal media and the hollywood elite but the bottom line is they are filled with hate for the President and much of what America stands for and everybody knows it.

    It is a well known (but sad) fact. that the democrats would rather see America completely destroyed, than give Trump one inch. Their hatred for Trump knows no bounds. Democrats today hate God, they hate anybody who loves and worships the True and Holy God…. TDS must be a terminal condition.
