U.S. President Donald Trump played golf and watched sumo wrestling with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the second day of his four-day state visit to Japan.
Climbing into the sumo ring, Trump presented a special U.S. made trophy to rank-and-file wrestler Asanoyama, the winner of Japan’s Summer Grand Sumo Tournament holding in Tokyo.
Asanoyama delightedly said; “I’m too pleased for words.”
Trump and his wife Melania watched the last five bouts of Sunday’s sumo tournament, hosted by Abe and his wife Akie.
Trump who spoke with Japanese business leaders on Saturday, said that his intention was to make bilateral trade with the host country“a little bit more fair”, referring to his country’s trade deficit with Japan.
Bilateral trade is one of the major points of discussion when Trump and Abe hold talks on Monday.
