Trump Becomes First State Visitor Since Naruhito’s Ascension


President Donald Trump happens to be the first state visitor since Emperor Naruhito ascended the throne, as he arrived Japan on Saturday for a ceremonial visit.

Trump arrived with first lady Melania Trump in Tokyo, eager for the pomp and circumstance as he escapes Democrats talks of impeachment back home, upi reports.

Ceremonies include an imperial dinner banquet hosted by the Emperor and his Harvard-educated wife, Empress Masako, to show strong U.S.-Japan ties, as the country depends on Washington for military protection, and a visit to a naval base being arranged by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Trump is also looking forward to presenting a trophy to the winner of Tokyo’s spring sumo wrestling tournament after witnessing the even from ringside seats, White House officials said.

“It’s about 54 inches (tall) and weighs 60-70 lbs,” and “is called the President’s Cup,” a senior White House Official said referring to the trophy.

Trump will meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on Sunday for a series of engagements and talks about trade, but U.S. officials said the talks will be secondary to the ceremonies meant to flatter him.

The visit marks the first official state visit of the Reiwa era, meaning “beautiful harmony,” which began on May 1, when Emperor Naruhito ascended to the throne following his 85-year-old father’s abdication.

Air Force One touched down at Haneda International Airport just before 4 a.m. ET nearly (5 p.m. local time), according to pool reports. Then, they attended dinner with Japanese business leaders.

“We just walk off the plane and here we are, along with probably 40 of the greatest business leaders in the world,” Trump said. “The first lady and I are thrilled to be with you as we celebrate Japan’s Reiwa era, a very special time.”

The dinner meeting was meant to promote investment and a new trade agreement to reduce the $68 billion trade deficit with Japan as Trump insists that the United States has gotten an unfair deal.

“As you known the United States and Japan are hard at work negotiation a bilateral trade agreement that will benefit both of our countries,” Trump said. “Japan has had a substantial advantage for many, many years, but that’s OK, maybe that’s why you like us so much.”

The trip begins an intensive foreign travel schedule for Trump, who will later take off for Europe and then go back to Asia over the next month.
