Sumo Association confirms President Trump to present trophy at Summer Tournament

Kyodo News filed a report on Sunday evening citing sources at the Japan Sumo Association confirming that President Trump will attend the Summer Grand Sumo Tournament at Tokyo’s Ryogoku Kokugikan later this month and present a newly made trophy to the winner. The sources revealed that the President is likely to watch the final three bouts on the closing day of the meet on May 26. The association is reportedly making arrangements for him to watch the bouts from a specially situated dining table near the raised ring at the center of the hall while also taking security into consideration. Asahi carried a similar report on Sunday, saying that the new trophy will be called the “Trump Cup.”
