Sat, Nov 4, 2017: Trump address U.S. troops stationed near Tokyo

President Donald Trump touched down in Japan late Saturday ahead of a 13-day trek through Asia.

Trump rallied American and Japanese forces at an air base near Tokyo on Sunday, touting the strength of the US-Japanese alliance as he began his five-country tour through Asia, where he is set to focus on the North Korean threat.

Praising the assembled troops as “brave warriors” who are “the last bulwark against threats” facing the US and Japan, Trump thanked American servicemembers stationed at Yokota Air Base and talked up the US military prowess in the region.

“We dominate the sky. We dominate the seas. We dominate the land and space,” Trump said soon after donning a flight jacket presented to him after he stepped off Air Force One.

Trump’s remarks were devoid the kinds of direct threats he has previously aimed at the North Korean regime, with the President instead choosing to focus on the US-Japanese alliance and the peaceful aims of US military might in the region.

“You put hope in every soul that yearns for peace,” Trump told the assembled troops.

President Trump paid a solemn visit Friday to Pearl Harbor and its memorial to the USS Arizona, a hallowed place he said he had read about, discussed and studied but had never visited until just before opening his first official visit to Asia, the longest trip to the continent by a sitting president in more than 25 years.

Mr. Trump saluted after entering the memorial following a short boat ride with first lady Melania Trump. They approached a wreath of white flowers — a gift from the couple — and watched as two sailors who stood beside it at attention placed the wreath near a wall of names of the fallen.  Continue reading “Fri, Nov 3, 2017: Trump visits Pearl Harbor, USS Arizona memorial in Hawaii”
