“One of the most Trump things ever”
As seen on The Five


Jesse Watters said the leader of the free world did “one of the most Trump things ever” while holding a business lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Instead of ordering tempura, sushi or other local delicacies, Trump decided to eat a well-done cheeseburger.

Watters said the president confirmed that the sourcing of the beef was American.

Beside Trump are two bottles which Watters said appear to be ketchup and yellow mustard from Pittsburgh-based Heinz.

Abe wrote on Twitter that he enjoyed holding the “burger [and] business lunch” with President Trump.

BEAUTIFUL! Elementary students sing beautiful song for Melania Trump in Tokyo, Japan.

The gorgeous First Lady was joined by Japan’s First Lady Akie Abe at  Kyobashi Tsukiji Elementary School

CNN reports:

At the sight of the 200 or so uniformed students assembled to greet her in the school’s gymnasium, Trump’s face lit up — she high-fived them, was drowned in hugs and posed for a group photo, where, like the kids, she made a peace sign with her two fingers.
A Japanese calligraphy lesson was next; the fourth-grade classroom erupted in applause as the two first ladies entered, mindfully watching the children draw brush strokes.


As Mrs. Abe and Melania left the elementary school, a band played “Over the Rainbow,” and the youngest students enthusiastically waved little US and Japanese flags.

Trump shakes Japan emperor's hand but doesn't bow


President Donald Trump met with Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Monday, sharing a brief handshake eight years after his predecessor became a global laughingstock by bowing deeply before the monarch.

Visiting with the emperor and empress is routine for heads of state visiting Tokyo, and Trump did his part a few hours before a joint press conference with Prime Minster Shinzo Abe, who wields more power than the aging figurehead.

Trump nodded his head slightly, but did not bend at the waist.

An administration official traveling with Trump on his Far East tour told DailyMail.com that bowing is ‘not his style – never has been.’

( Daily Mail ) Rescuers are searching for seven US Sailors thought to be lost at sea or trapped inside a damaged Navy destroyer which collided with a 29,000 ton cargo ship 56 miles off the coast of Japan Saturday.

The guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald suffered severe damage when the container ship ACX Crystal – which is four times the size of the naval vessel – plowed into it at 2.30am local time.

Aerial footage shows the crushed exterior of the 9,000 ton $1.5billion destroyer which is commanded by Commander Bryce Benson, who took over in May.

Japanese coast guard spokesman Yoshihito Nakamura said the rescuers are searching for the seamen who were thought to have been thrown into the sea or possibly trapped inside damaged sections of the destroyer. Two crew berthings and one engineering main space have been flooded.

Three aboard the destroyer were medically evacuated, including the ship’s commanding officer, Cmdr. Benson, who was reportedly in stable condition after being airlifted to the U.S. Naval Hospital in Yokosuka, the Navy said.

The other two injured were transferred to the hospital for lacerations and bruises, while other injuries were being assessed, it said.

‘It was a was real fight by crew to keep the ship afloat. Our concerns now are with ship mates; seven sailors missing and 2 evacuees. When the news came we were all focused on the safety of or ship and the crew,’ a naval spokesman in Yokosuka told DailyMail.com. ‘We at the base are still reeling from the events.’
