North Korea worries linger as Trump leaves Japan
TOKYO (AP) - President Donald Trump appears to have offered little to reassure Japanese leaders on some of their key worries as he wraps up a four-day state visit.
Trump is concluding his Japanese trip with rifts still evident between the two countries on trade and North Korea. Japan had rolled out the red carpet for Trump, including a showy visit with Japan's new emperor.
But the visit has also seen Trump play down the significance of North Korean missile tests that have rattled Japan, and renew his threats of tariffs on Japanese auto imports. The president and Melania Trump are due to take part in a Memorial Day ceremony aboard a US battleship before leaving the region.
