MOFA drafts standard press guidance on President Trump’s messages on Twitter

Mainichi claimed that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has created standard press guidance for use by all government ministries and agencies regarding tweets posted by President Trump irrespective of their contents. According to an unnamed GOJ source, the guidance reads: “We do not comment on individual messages” on the grounds that they do “not necessarily represent official views of the U.S. government.” The guidance was drafted in order to avoid giving the impression that Japan is rattled by the President’s tweets, says a MOFA source.
