WASHINGTON - When President Trump signed a new law on steel and aluminum tariffs, he mentioned Japan and the "little smile" on its leader's face reflecting what Trump believed to be the island nation's pleasure at long having a trade advantage over the United States.
Trump has made a regular habit of profiting from the presidency, which he began right after his inauguration with another visit from Japan's prime minister.
"If we don't think it's going to be successful. we won't have it", Trump said, adding: "If the meeting, when I'm there is not fruitful, I will respectfully leave the meeting". "We'll iron those out, hopefully".
Trump and Japan's Shinzo Abe are expected to discuss trade issues and North Korea during the two-day summit.
North Korea will hold a plenary meeting of its ruling party's central committee on Friday, state media KCNA says.
Analysts say that the Chinese side took the initiative for spurring Mr. Wang's visit.
Abe did, however, secured a commitment from Trump to raise with Kim the issue of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea. Mike Pompeo, acting Secretary of State, stated that the summit with North Korea is "to address the threat to the United States".
For his part, Abe is facing cronyism scandals in Japan related to the discounted sale of government land to a private school and the approval of a new veterinary school run by one of the Prime Minister's friends.
Trump's briefing comes after multiple reports that Central Intelligence Agency director Mike Pompeo met with the North Korean leader over Easter weekend. Trump greeted Abe at the red-carpeted door of the mansion as the pair posed for photos ahead of a one-on-one meeting and a group discussion with national security officials about the Kim summit. "He had a great meeting with Kim Jong-Un, and got along with him really well, really great".
"Maximum pressure should be maintained", Abe said at Mar-a-Lago.
