When Trump welcomed Japan's Prime Minister Abe to the White House, it seemed like the two men actually liked each other. Watching these two men, one had to wonder what made Trump treat Abe with seemingly more warmth and respect than he had given to many other world leaders. What caused this to happen? Was it due to Trump's possibly insatiable love for all things Japanese: their food, their manners, their porn? No, it was something much more appealing to Trump's heart: their money.

It is being reported that Trump "reportedly lobbied in favor of a billionaire donor’s business interests when meeting last year with his Japanese counterpart." The billionaire is casino owner Sheldon Adelson, who, along with his wife, "contributed $20 million to Trump’s presidential campaign and gave $5 million to help fund his inaugural festivities."

According to the report, "Adelson’s Las Vegas Sands Corp. and its rivals are competing for a limited number of licenses to build casinos in Japan in the wake of the country’s move to legalize such facilities. Japan is viewed by the industry as one of the world’s last untapped markets, and its market could be worth up to $25 billion per year."

Oh well, another day and another story of how Trump is working hard to "Make America Great Again."


“I regret that the press treats me so badly.” Donald Trump.
