Korea high on summit agenda / Japan hopes for best, but Trump unpredictable

Melania Trump Gives Shinzo Abe's Wife A History Lesson As President Golfs

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived at Mar-a-Lago in Florida yesterday.

Abe also aimed to secure Trump's cooperation on the abduction issue - an important subject for the prime minister - to ensure it would not be shelved in the inter-Korean and U.S.

Trump confirmed earlier today that Mike Pompeo recently spoke to Kim Jong Un and North Korean officials about arranging a diplomatic summit in the coming months. He said earlier on Wednesday he thought the United States would soon be able to trim its trade deficit with Japan and that Tokyo planned to order large numbers of US aircraft.

President Trump, on the other hand, went with a navy and white striped tie that complemented his wife's chic yacht club ensemble.

In the first news report about the meeting, The Washington Post said it had taken place two weeks ago, shortly after the Central Intelligence Agency chief was nominated to become secretary of state. "A lot of great things between our two countries". Before he left home, he said it would be high on his agenda in the meeting with Mr Trump.

But it's a line from newcomer Tobias Beckett ( Woody Harrelson ) that seems to allude to one of the franchise's biggest twists. What are you most excited about? In the meantime, here's everything we know so far.

Pressed specifically about whether the goal was to push for denuclearization (a goal that would benefit Japan, South Korea, and the rest of the world, not just the US), Pompeo said: "We need to ensure that we continue to provide a strategic deterrence framework for our allies in the region: the South Koreans, the Japanese and others as well".

The summit with Abe comes as the President prepares for historic talks with Kim, a prospect that Abe has warned will come with risks.

During the 40-minute tour, the first lady and Akie Abe also got acquainted with Flagler's private vehicle, called Railcar No. 91, and wicker wheelchairs that the wealthy used to get around Palm Beach in the early 1900s.

Larry Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council, had said earlier Tuesday that issuing Japan the waiver was "on the table", but he declined to say what Trump would ask for in return.

Abe said that Trump had promised to bring up the Japanese abductee issue in his meeting with Kim. Intermediate range missiles test-launched by North Korea have landed in the waters off Japan. However, it remains to be seen whether the U.S. Abe will have to overcome policy divisions on trade and potentially North Korea that have emerged in Trump's second year in office. "We've also started talking to north Korea directly".
