WASHINGTON – President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced Sunday that the two countries had agreed to the framework of a trade deal.
“We’ve been working on a deal with Japan for a long time. And we’ve agreed in principle,” Trump said, adding that the deal would amount to “billions and billions of dollars.”
Japan, Trump said, agreed to buy excess corn from American farmers.
“With regard to the potential purchase of American corn, in Japan we are now experiencing insect pests on some agricultural products,” Abe explained to the White House pool, using a translator. “And there is a need for us to buy some of the agricultural products.”
トランプ“We have excess corn in various parts of our country ... and Prime Minister Abe on behalf of Japan they’re going to be buying all of that corn.” トランプ「我々はトウモロコシが国のいろんな場所で余ってる。安倍首相は日本を代表して全てのトウモロコシを買うと言ってくれた。」 日本語訳：トランプ大統領「中国が（トウモロコシを大量に買う）約束を守らないから、米国にはトウモロコシが余剰に在庫ある。そこで 安倍首相がその余剰トウモロコシを全部買ってくれる。」
