While making a state visit to Japan, President Donald Trump claimed another historic first.
Before meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Trump took the time to become the first foreign leader to meet with Japan’s Emperor Naruhito.
Trump made history at Japan’s Imperial Palace where he and his wife were welcomed by the new new emperor and empress.
While recording audio of the encounter was strictly forbidden, Trump and Emperor Naruhito could be seen exchanging pleasantries.
Trump had previously met with Naruhito’s father when he visited Japan in November of 2017.
