All national dailies wrote that as President Biden apparently has strong confidence in Rahm Emanuel, the veteran Washington insider will have direct channels of communication with the White House if he is confirmed as ambassador to Japan. Nikkei quoted an unnamed Democratic source as saying: “Mr. Emanuel can communicate directly with the President and his top deputies anytime.” The GOJ reportedly has high expectations for Emanuel on account of his strong bonds with President Biden and other key Democratic figures. Yomiuri quoted an unnamed senior Japanese diplomat as saying: “Emanuel will be an excellent liaison because he has direct channels of communication with the White House.”
