"We're in the midst of having very major discussions on many subjects, including North Korea and trade and we're doing very well", Trump told reporters in front of a restaurant in Tokyo alongside Abe. Abe will be looking for a united front against North Korea and reassurances that the US will stand by its treaty obligations to defend Japan if attacked.

Japan is the first stop on Trump's five-nation Asia tour.
His trip got off to a colorful start in Hawaii. He says: "I am landing shortly". Mr. Trump extended the trip by a day on Friday when he agreed to participate in a summit of East Asian nations in Manila. He will kick off with an event at Yokota Air Base.
The trip will also put Trump in face-to-face meetings with authoritarian leaders for whom he has expressed admiration. He's set to make his case to Asian allies and rivals about the need to counter North Korea's nuclear threat. Just days ago, his former campaign chairman was indicted and another adviser pleaded guilty as part of an investigation into possible collusion between his 2016 campaign and Russian officials.
