Over Weekend Trip and Despite North Korea Missile Launch Trump Affirms Alliance with Japan Strong as Ever!

A reminder once again how Trump is restoring the confidence of our allies!

First official head of state visit to the Trump White House was British Prime Minister Theresa May. Both leaders stood next to the bush of Winston Churchill in the Oval Office which Trump restored after Obama's banishment of that visible symbol of allied unity.

Now, an important visit by one of our nation's strongest allies in the Pacific region. While the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was the first world leader to meet Trump in New York after he was elected, this visit affirms our strong alliance with a more informal meeting in Florida following official meetings in the White House on Friday.

Arriving in Florida aboard Air Force One. The Japanese Prime Minister arrived in Washington aboard his own 747. Now he can compare the ride to Trump's.

Golf was on the agenda at a Trump golf course:

And dinner at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate:

North Korea attempted to break up the party by firing a missile. So, time out for business as Trump and Abe affirmed allied unity. Trump: "I just want everybody to understand and fully know that the United States of America stands behind Japan, its great ally, 100 per cent."

Along for the ride were Trump's daughter Ivanka and husband Jared, a senior Trump adviser, and their children:

Treating our allies with respect and a good time. What a winning formula!
