President Donald Trump had the first full day of his visit to Japan on Sunday. He's the first foreign leader to visit since the country inaugurated a new emperor at the end of April.
President Trump said at a dinner with Japanese Prime Minister Abe Shinzō, "The Prime Minister and I talked a lot today about trade and military and various other things. I think we had a very productive day."
President Trump says Japan and the U.S. are "getting close" to a deal that would address the U.S.'s trade deficit with Japan. According to U.S. figures from last year, there's a $67.6 billion trade imbalance in Japan's favor.
The commander-in-chief told Japanese business leaders, "I would say that Japan has had a substantial edge for many, many years. But that's okay. Maybe that's why you like us so much. But we'll get it a little bit more fair, I think. I think we'll do that."
But Japan's economy minister said he doesn't expect a deal to be made during this trip. Abe and President Trump will hold a summit on Monday to negotiate trade.
