President Trump’s foreign trip seems to have begun on a positive note, with his flamboyant speech at the Yokota Air Base in Japan and even few golf games with Prime Minister Abe. His calm only seems to have been interrupted by the Church shooting that happened in Texas on Sunday.
🐦 Just gave a speech to the great men and women at Yokota Air Base in Tokyo, Japan. Leaving to see Prime Minister Abe.
Sporting a bomber jacket as he addressed U.S. 🇺🇸 troops at Yokota Air Base just after landing in Japan, Trump touted the might of the U.S. military as he began his tour of Asia at a time of heightened tensions with North Korea. “We dominate the sky. We dominate the sea. We dominate the land and space,” the president said. “Not merely because we have the best equipment, which we do, and by the way, a lot of it’s coming in. You saw that budget. That’s a lot different than in the past. A lot of beautiful brand new equipment is coming in. And nobody makes it like they make it in the United States. Nobody.”
🐦 Playing golf with Prime Minister Abe and Hideki Matsuyama, two wonderful people!
🐦 It was a true honor to be at Yokota Air Base with our GREAT USForcesJapan!
🐦 Heading into the 12 days with great negotiating strength because of our tremendous economy.
A day before this tweet, Trump boasted about improvements in the US economy, saying that the unemployment had fallen to 4.1 percent — its lowest level in 17 years, and noted that the US stock market’s value 📈 had hit a record high, up $5.4 trillion since he took office.
🐦 May God be w/ the people of Sutherland Springs, Texas. The FBI & law enforcement are on the scene. I am monitoring the situation from Japan.
A man walked into the First Baptist Church ⛪ in Sutherland Springs, about 40 miles southeast of San Antonio around 11:30 a.m. on Sunday and began shooting. At least 26 people were killed and 30 more were injured. Police have said that the alleged shooter is dead.
🐦 Americans do what we do best: we pull together. We join hands. We lock arms and through the tears and the sadness, we stand strong…
