Trump welcomes Abe with warm White House embrace

President Donald Trump welcomed Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe

with a brotherly hug and warm words of admiration, as he ditched previously hard-charging rhetoric toward Tokyo during a White House summit. Trump praised his guest's "strong hands," the pair's "very, very good chemistry" and rolled out a White House military honor guard in a remarkable public display of diplomatic affection. "When I greeted him today at the car," Trump said after an Oval Office meeting, "I shook hands, but I grabbed him and hugged him, because that's the way we feel." The odd political couple had lunch at the White House before heading to Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida for further talks and a round of golf on Saturday. At Palm Beach airport, the pair were welcomed by a swarm of black SUVs, and a group of onlookers wearing red "Make America Great Again" hats.
