"I have to say that for the last many decades, Japan has been winning". Congratulations. Come on, let me shake your hand.
In a visit to Residence of the US Ambassador, Trump stated that, "We made the greatest military equipment in the world". Mazda also announced in August that it was working with Toyota and investing $1.6 billion to build a manufacturing plant in the United States - and which Trump acknowledged will produce 4,000 jobs in the country. "But I never ran, so I wasn't very experienced".
