Trump Accidentally Praises Japan, Scrambles to Come Up with Insults

Trump is right about American cars in Japan — but the situation is never going to change

To be fair, Trump also said: "Right now our trade with Japan is not fair and it isn't open".

The U.S. has a $69 billion trade deficit with Japan.

The Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association's US office said recently Japanese automakers have a 35-year history of investment and innovation in the U.S.

President Donald Trump pushed Japanese automakers to build more cars in the USA during his visit to that country.

"Japanese automakers have tried: The country's big three auto companies already have huge factories in the USA, and their production in the country is at a record high".

U.S. President Donald Trump's five-nation Asian trip has started off with an automotive mention. It doesn't matter if the claims are true-like when he called Germany "bad, very bad" for all the cars it sells in the USA, failing to mention that auto giants like B.M.W. and Mercedes-Benz actually manufacture many of their vehicles stateside-only that the people who voted for him get another soundbite of his "America First" schtick.

Found Dead in the Mediterranean Sea
Twenty-three of the girls were found near a rubber dinghy that officials believe sank on Friday, according to AFP . Among the 375 survivors were 90 women, eight of them pregnant, 52 children and some Libyan men and women on board.

It said that three out of four Japanese cars sold in the US past year were built in North America, including Mexico and Canada.

I also want to recognize the business leaders in the room whose confidence in the United States - they've been creating jobs - you have such confidence in the United States, and you've been creating jobs for our country for a long, long time. "Several Japanese automobile industry firms have been really doing a job".

As much of the social-media world had it, Trump lived up to the image of the grotesque, laughable United States president we've grown accustomed to in the past eight-plus months. (Laughter.) If you could build them.

He praised Japan for buying US military hardware, which he said was the "best military equipment in the world", but added that "many millions of cars are sold by Japan into the United States, whereas virtually no cars go from the United States into Japan". Subaru's in Indiana, Nissan is in Tennessee and Alabama, and even tiny Mazda is planning to build a plant here soon-with Toyota. Oh, I thought that was you. Congratulations. Come on, let me shake your hand. Thank you very much.

However, Toyota and Mazda declared in august that they were starting new manufacturing plant with the investment of $1.6 billion in the United States, which will lead to create almost 400 new jobs.
