The Lion Visits The Bamboo Forest

(Via Reuters) […]  President Trump will also have a state call with the Imperial Family at Akasaka Palace during his visit. Abe and Trump will meet families of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea.

Joined by his wife Melania on part of the trip, Trump’s tour of Asia is the longest by an American president since George H.W. Bush in 1992. Besides Japan, he will visit South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Trump extended the trip by a day on Friday when he agreed to participate in a summit of East Asian nations in Manila.

[…] Trump’s trip is to be dominated by trade and how to muster more international pressure on North Korea to give up nuclear weapons.

“We’ll be talking about trade,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Friday. “We’ll be talking about obviously North Korea. We’ll be enlisting the help of a lot of people and countries and we’ll see what happens. But I think we’re going to have a very successful trip. There is a lot of good will.”

Trump has rattled some allies with his vow to “totally destroy” North Korea if it threatens the United States and his dismissal of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a “rocket man” on a suicide mission.

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster, briefing reporters on Friday, defended Trump’s colorful language.  “What’s inflammatory is the North Korean regime and what they’re doing to threaten the world,” McMaster said.

Trump will seek a united front with the leaders of Japan and South Korea against North Korea before visiting Beijing to make the case to Chinese President Xi Jinping that he should do more to rein in Pyongyang.

Trade will factor heavily during Trump’s trip as he tries to persuade Asian allies to agree to trade policies more favorable to the United States.

A centerpiece of the trip will be a visit to the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam, where he will deliver a speech in support of a free and open Indo-Pacific region, which is seen as offering a bulwark in response to expansionist Chinese policies. (read more)

    The Japanese are golf mad but can’t afford it as the few clubs are so exclusive. Some years ago, Iwasaki built a golfing resort in sub tropical Yeppoon in Queensland, Australia, so Japanese could holiday in the tropics at the beach and golf, their dream holiday. They would be impressed by Pres Trump (a) owning so many actual golf courses around the world and in USA, and (b), that he is a top golfer himself. This will get a lot of publicity and favorable attention in Japan.

    I couldn’t help but imagine rocketman pacing the whole time our President Trump is visiting all of these countries. I’m sure he will drive China nuts by demanding they tell him what is being said and going on without him. Too funny. I’m sure he will be dying to test another missile, but I really can’t imagine him being that bloody daft. I can see him telling off China and how lousy their spies are, but not the missile launching.

    I saw a click bait article on how no one attended, or barely attended Ivanka’s speech in Japan. All I could think of is did they take the picture hours before or after. I never clicked on the article, no reason too. I would think if she is loved in China, the Japanese probably think highly of her as well along with Vietnam and the others. She is a beautiful, highly intelligent and graceful lady with impeccable manners.

    I look forward to watching this all play out here at CTH, there is no place better. I just hope Sundance will be able to get some good sleep between it all.
    Be well good Treepers,

      Rocketman 🚀 realizes that over the next 11 days, his life and his country are as close to being whipped off the face of the Earth 🌏 than at any other time. We have are B2 nuclear carrying planes ✈️ humming just miles away from North Korea 🇰🇵. Any missile that he would launch would have those planes ✈️ drop destruction and death 💀 within minutes.

        Thank you for the informative video, and it even took me down memory lane…

        A long time ago, my Dad and I were just hanging out in the living room when I remembered him bursting out with something like this, “Finally! Now I can talk about it!” As he was waving a picture of the B-2 from the Readers Digest in front of me. When he first waved it in front of me I will never forget I had originally thought it was an alien space craft or something, I’m serious! I had never seen a plane like that in all of my years as an Air Force Brat.

        I don’t remember how long my Dad and I sat there going down memory lane, and I don’t remember much of the conversation, just his first intitial reaction and lots of numbers coming out that made no sense to me. He was just so darn happy he could finally talk about one of the many secrets he had held while in service. He was like a kid with the excitement of Christmas morning. Good memory.

        Thank you Fleporeblog! Be well and stay smiling!

      I don’t think China is the ideal destination to speak of women’s rights in a country where virtually all of the people are oppressed. As far as Japan, maybe The General Assembly limited her audience, for whatever reason. I think she’s perfectly lovely and very accomplished.

    Why such a long trip?
    Speculation: if the Uniparty was making money by selling / giving away U.S BLM mineral rights, and giving away public (other people’s) money for foreign companies to buy the uranium, and this includes Russia and Iran, and somehow EU is mixed up in this, then the president will need some countervailing allies in uninvolved countries to counter-weight this. Possibly to draw upon international pressure, and foreign intelligence to follow the money – it cannot be followed by U.S. agencies since they are corrupt.

    IOW: Trump may need international allies to bring down this level of corruption. These allies could be Japan, et al.

Even with all the perks of AF1 and his private staff, it still is more than your typical 9-5 job. Love my President!

          You are referring to the super shot pink skirt and the very long legs sticking out from under it…? I say nothing even though I used to work in fashion industry. I think the photos speak for themselves. Often people do not see themselves as others do and when Ivanka sees herself in a photo she will see what we do. I sure changes will be made.
          We need to do say anything she knows.
          By the way it is unfair to call people who voice their opinions as trashing Ivanka.

          Obviously some people have not been to Japan lately. Most women, especially working women in their mid 30s and under, dress in pants or skirt suits. When in skirts, most fall above the knee.
          If Ivanka was a size 12 or bigger, or even 10 years older I’d say she should have worn something with a longer skir..
          I stand with Ivanka on her apparel.
          Yes there are a few countires that her pink suit would not have fit in due to the length of the skirt.

            That’s what I was thinking – the Trumps are very conscious of the culture and customs of the countries they are visiting. As Ivanka is young, her fashion style would go with that. There are a lot of other “young” styles popular there that are downright crazy (in my eyes).

            We had a Eurovision song contest singer who looked almost like a Sailor Moon character. Young’uns can get away with it 🙂

    Thanks to all those posting graphics and photos! Great information as always, Sundance. Such a pleasure to read about our President with such pride in my chest. Gone are the days I’d cringe about the ways our X would trash us, bowing and scraping abroad. What an embarrassment he was – and that wife! Omar the Tentmaker probably did the best he could with what he had to work with fashionwise, but there were days when wrapping the XFL in a tablecloth would have been an improvement. The contrast between the two administrations is not lost on me. Thanks be to God for his mercy and continued provision of our President and his family.

    I think the Vietnam inclusion is a very interesting part of the trip – Da Nang and Hanoi. I hadn’t considered the McCain connection.. Hmm…. Vietnam is also a strong trading partner. When the TPP was canceled the big thing that changed was who picked the winners and losers on that deal. In making binary deals, President Trump changes the dynamic back to “winners are the ones not trying to rob us”. Vietnam is a willing partner in this regard. Instead of who gets to gouge us the most as we surrender our sovereignty, it’s now on for who has the best deal to offer us. President Trump is burying the TPP right where it started. I hope that grinds the globalists’ teeth down to the gums.

    The part of the trip that worries me falls near the end. I am fervently praying that all possible that can be done is done and done well to protect our President. Nobody is working harder to ensure a better future for all of us and our families.

    • I know someone that found a tailor in Vietnam that could do a custom order. They shipped the fabric to the tailor but customs wanted so much money to release the fabric that it ended up stuck there. Everything needs to flow both ways.
