Abe comments on TPP and Trump

All Friday morning papers reported on remarks made at the Diet on Thursday by Prime Minister Abe, who said he is “not confident” that Japan’s ratification of the TPP will prompt the Trump administration to alter its position on the trade deal. Asked by Democratic Party President Renho what made him feel the President-elect is a “trustworthy leader,” the premier cited that the fact that Trump showed respect for President Obama despite his critical rhetoric during the campaign. Abe dismissed Renho’s demand to disclose what they discussed in New York by stressing that they promised not to reveal the details.
