Japan vs US: No, Japan is not ‘killing’ us, we’re killing Japan, our staunchest Asian ally

President Obama will become the first sitting president to visit Hiroshima when he travels to Japan later this month to attend the G7 summit. While it’s unlikely he’ll apologize for the decision to drop an atomic bomb on the city in 1945 (nor should he), he will certainly be mending fences. The Japanese today are appropriately dismayed and anxious at what they’re hearing from Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

Among the many odd pronouncements made by Trump during the presidential campaign, this year is this often-repeated reference to Japan: “They’re killing us!” He’s saying Japan’s economic success comes at America’s expense.
