Tokyo Shimbun published an interview with President Ohashi of Komatsu Ltd., during which he expressed gratitude for President-elect Trump because his firm’s profile was boosted in the U.S. market following the businessman-turned-politician’s criticism. Trump said on the campaign trail: “People are buying Komatsu tractors instead of Caterpillar tractors. I’m telling you, we’re in trouble.” The Japanese businessmen explained that many Americans have learned of Komatsu, as U.S. media has reported extensively and mostly positively on the company’s extensive business activities in North America, including the employment of some 6,000 Americans.
