Trump Boasts That He’ll Be The “Only Guest Of Honor” At Japan’s “Biggest Event In Over 200 Years” [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

President Trump on Thursday boasted that he will be the guest of honor at Japan’s “biggest event” in “over 200 years” when he visits the country this weekend to meet with the prime minister and new emperor.

During an impromptu Q&A with reporters in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, Trump was asked whether he believes he can work out a trade deal with Japan in the near future. The president did not answer, but played up the historic nature of his state visit.

“It’s a very big thing going on with the emperor,” Trump said. “It’s something that hasn’t happened in over 200 years. I am the guest, meaning the United States is the guest, but Prime Minister Abe said to me very specifically, ‘You are the guest of honor. There’s only one guest of honor. You are the guest of honor.'”
