President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife Akie Abe for an intimate ‘First Couples Dinner’ on Friday evening at The White House to celebrate the U.S. First Lady’s 49thBirthday.
The two leaders who have since developed a very close and personal relationship first met during the day for a bilateral trade meeting between their two respective countries – U.S. and Japan – where they hoped to reach an agreement over the issue of tariffs.
The First Ladies have also become close friends, an affection that has become obvious in public wherever the two meet.
The two leaders – Trump and Abe – planned to play a round of gold later on Saturday with the weather permitting.
President Trump is scheduled to visit Japan late in May next moth for a state visit together with First Lady Melania. The two are are expected to also meet with the country’s new Emperor.
