Share of Japanese describing relations with U.S. as “good” decreases

On Saturday all national dailies took up the results of a Cabinet Office public opinion survey showing an increase in the number of Japanese who view the current state of U.S.-Japan relations negatively. According to the poll, 74% said trans-Pacific ties are in good shape, down 10 points from a year ago. Those who said bilateral relations are in bad shape rose to 22.7%, up 10.3 points. The papers attributed the drop in positive views of U.S.-Japan ties to President Trump’s hardline stance on trade and other issues.
