NHK reported that President Trump posted a tweet on Thursday congratulating Prime Minister Suga on his inauguration, saying: “Congratulations Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga. You have a great life story! I know you will do a tremendous job for Japan and for the world. Look forward to talking soon!” The network said that prior to the President’s tweet, the White House released a statement saying that the President “looks forward to working with Prime Minister Suga” to make the U.S.-Japan relationship even stronger.

He was quoted as saying: “I congratulate Yoshihide Suga on his election as Prime Minister of Japan. I am looking forward to working with him and Foreign Minister Toshimitsu Motegi to uphold the U.S.-Japan Alliance as the cornerstone of peace, security, and prosperity in a free and open Indo-Pacific.”
