On Sunday morning, President Trump accompanied by his wife Melania Trump arrived in Japan, his first stop on the Asia tour. They met with the U.S. troops at Yokota Air Base where the President addressed them.
In his speech, Trump warned America’s enemies that the U.S. ‘will never yield, never waver and never falter in defense of our people’
“American soldiers are prepared to defend their nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities. No one – no dictator, no regime and no nation – should underestimate, ever, American resolve,” Trump told the troops at Yokota Air Base just outside of Tokyo.
“Japan is a treasured partner and crucial ally of the United States and today we thank them for welcoming us and for decades of wonderful friendship between our two nations,” the President added.
Before Trump’s addressing, the commander of U.S. Forces Japan, Lt. Gen. Jerry Martinez invited Col. Kenneth Moss, 374th Airlift Wing commander to pop on the stage to deliver special gift to President Trump.
“Mr. President, sir, I will tell you, you look great in that suit. But there’s something missing,” Lt. Martinez said.
When Col. Moss appeared on the stage he came carrying a commander-in-chief jacket, holding it up for Trump to inspect.
“Oh, wow,” the president was surprised by this act. “Should I put it on?” he asked the crowd and he received “Yeah” from the audience. Trump swapped it for the suit jacket that he already had on. “I like this better,” he said.
“You can have my jacket,” he told Moss, waving him away.
“Aw, boy, that’s something. This is a great group of people. I’ll issue one of your favorite commands. Are you ready? At ease. At ease. Now have a good time. Just have a good time,” Trump told the crowd.
