GOJ disappointed with President’s tour of China

TV-Asahi “Hodo Station” took up President Trump’s remarks on Wednesday proclaiming the success of his recent trip to East Asia. Regular commentator former Kyodo News managing editor Goto claimed that the GOJ was discouraged by the U.S. leader’s behavior in China and the remainder of his trip since from a Japanese perspective, the President did not follow through with the promise he made in Tokyo for the United States to apply maximum pressure on North Korea. The Abe administration was particularly disappointed by the fact that the President did not make a decision on putting North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism while he was travelling in the region. Goto said the President appeared to shift into “businessman” mode after arriving in Beijing.
