Mainichi, Yomiuri, and Asahi noted that Rahm Emanuel is sometimes referred to as “Rahmbo” in the United States because of his “sharp tongue” and “feisty” political style, with Asahi claiming that some GOJ officials are bracing for his combative style as President Biden’s chief representative in Japan. Mainichi projected that as the U.S. administration wants Tokyo to play a larger role in deterring China’s pursuit of security and tech hegemony, Emanuel may show his “Rahmbo” side in pressing the Suga administration to take on greater security responsibilities.
