G20/JAPAN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to visit Japan in May to meet with the country’s new emperor and then return in June for a G20 gathering, a White House official said on Wednesday [2-20-19] after a phone call between Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Trump’s first visit will likely take place from May 26 to 28, when he is expected to become the first foreign dignitary to meet Crown Prince Naruhito after he succeeds his father, Akihito, as emperor of Japan on May 1, NHK said, citing Japanese officials. Asked later in the Oval Office if he would be visiting Japan in May, Trump said, ‘I will be, at a certain time.’ Trump will also attend the Osaka meeting of the Group of 20 largest world economies in June, the White House official said.”
