More and more details about Donald Trump’s meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are coming out, and the embarrassment just keeps getting worse for the pathetic US President!
The Japan Times reports that Abe, in TV interviews upon his return to Japan, admitted he had to explain basic economic realities to Trump! The Prime Minister said he informed Trump, who has repeatedly jabbered about the US’s trade deficit with Japan, that the “[current] structure is different from that of the trade frictions in the 1980s and 1990s.”
Apparently, Trump’s understanding of the economic relationship between the US and Japan is entirely based on 1980s movies like Gung Ho and Rising Sun! So Abe sat him down and explained that exports of Japanese cars are decreasing, and revealed to him that more Japanese cars are produced in the United States. (The South is full of Toyota plants, Donald.)
