On Trump's visit to Asia, I was quoted by The Washington Times. Please see below.

Trump promises major announcements on trade, North Korea after ‘fruitful’ 12 days in Asia


Kosuke Takahashi, a longtime Japanese journalist working as the Tokyo correspondent for Jane’s Defense Weekly, said Mr. Trump’s comments about the need for Tokyo to buy more American weapons and shoot down the next missile North Korea fires over Japan were viewed with skepticism by Mr. Abe’s critics.

“In my view,” he told The Times, “President Trump has been fueling North Korean crisis by conducting fierce verbal attacks against North Korea’s Kim Jong-un intentionally. As a result, stock prices of U.S. defense companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop have been skyrocketing as they can sell expensive weapons such as Aegis missile defense system to Japan and South Korea. Trump is showing very good at top sales diplomacy.”
