Japanese Prime Minister Probably Will Visit Mar-a-Lago This Month

To say the presidential family’s stay in Palm Beach over the extended holiday weekend was eventful, would be putting it mildly. Such is the case for the entire town whenever the President Trump arrives. This marked his 17th visit since his presidency, with another expected visit in the next few weeks to once again host the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife.

Some time in between his Twitter rants about international relations, and rounds of golf, President Trump found time to attend Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church’s Easter Day services in Palm Beach. The President was joined by First Lady Melania Trump, daughter Tiffany and son Barron. On Easter Sunday morning, the White House Easter Egg Roll Reception began, immediately followed by the White House Easter Egg Roll event hosted by the President and First Lady of the United States of America. After the festivities later that afternoon, the Trumps and their youth exited Palm Beach and made their way back to D.C., where Mr. Trump met with Larry Kudlow, National Economic Council Director.

The eventful weekend was not without its blemishes. The exterior driveway signage for the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, was defaced with red paint, occurring on Saturday night. The incident is currently under investigation by Secret Service, but no official statement has been released at this time.

Japanese Prime Minister Probably Will Visit Mar-a-Lago This Month

The Town of Palm Beach will have a bit of a break from the road blocks, maritime zone restrictions and excessive security checks for the next two weeks, as it gears up to host another presidential visit; along with his guests the Prime Minister of Japan, Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie Abe. It will be a return visit to Palm Beach for the couple, who visited the President just over a year ago. A press release from the White House states the meeting is on schedule for April 17th through 18th, to discuss mutual interests and North Korea, in the effort to strengthen the alliance between Japan and the U.S.

According to the Press Secretary, “President Trump and Prime Minister Abe will explore ways to expand fair and reciprocal trade and investment ties between the United States and Japan, two of the world’s wealthiest and most innovative economies.” Adding, “The two leaders will discuss the international campaign to maintain maximum pressure on North Korea in advance of President Trump’s planned meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.”
