Trump to play round of golf with Japanese PM in Florida

A TV monitor showing U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is seen next to another monitor showing the Japanese yen's exchange rate against the U.S. dollar at a foreign exchange trading company in Tokyo Japan

Highlights of the day for U. S. President Donald Trump's administration on Wednesday: JAPAN Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe heads to Washington on Thursday hoping promises to help create U.

Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a news conference on February 7, "It's extremely important (for the prime minister) to build a personal relationship of trust (with the president)", justifying Abe's golf diplomacy.

Japan is planning to invest in USA infrastructure as part of a broader policy framework that Abe is expected to pitch to Trump when they meet this week.

But for all the economic quid pro quo with this most transactional of U.S. presidents, the one-on-one that time on the golf course offers could be Abe's best bet for building a stronger relationship. They are scheduled to play golf together on the following Saturday.

Asked in parliament about his plans for talks with Trump, Abe said Japanese companies are making significant contributions to the US economy. "It's important for him to build a rapport with Trump - Trump likes strong nationalist leaders, and Abe is a strong nationalist leader - and personalize the institutionalized relationship".

The president spoke by phone with Abe last month about the future of U.S. -Japan relations and agreed to meet in Washington.

When President Donald Trump was on the campaign trail, one of his biggest promises was to create American jobs, vowing to stop companies from making jobs overseas.

Some experts cautioned that too subservient a response by Abe, such as a government-inspired jobs creation package, risks confirming Trump's view that old-style Japan bashing works. S.jobs and bolster his military will persuade Trump to turn down the heat on trade and currency and stand by the decades-old alliance. Nieto canceled his planned visit over a disagreement about the wall Trump has pledged to build along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Homeland Security chief John Kelly tells a congressional panel he should have delayed Trump's travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries and on all refugees so he could brief Congress on the executive order.

As the meeting with Trump approaches, it is the unpredictability of America's new leader that worries government officials and analysts the most.

Asahi said the Japanese government has been under pressure to provide a forum for dealing with bilateral economic issues led by Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Aso and Mike Fence, the vice president of the United States.
