But also talking a lot about the Russian investigation which was followed him here in of course that shooting overnight in Texas. Top top topic at the a press conference. Ya hot topic at a press conference obviously overshadowing a bit. Of this trip he was asked about an and then quickly. I'm labeled an element of health issue he dodged a little bit a question. Policy issue is meeting with the view on back and homes are definitely following. He's over there but DeVon the mind in the room and there weren't more Japanese importers and US reporters and in the you you know these are being done and they have that translation. Prime minister on the it was there have been allegations on size president from. Antique looking rental. And every ignorant you are telling us he was kind of making Eileen Ewing John Carlo yanking little about him a little about the little appointing a new arena in this kind Xena a useless to take two questions. Bill groups and consumer we were hoping that we would get more questions than that. That's not saying there aren't the. Traditional two into press conferences the White House said there were only going to be at least two of them on this thirteen day trip that sort of unusual for presidents. Totally they hold a couple more particularly at these summits which the presence in his visit at the end of today. He did take a number of questions from reporters. Both but the Texas shooting but also about this and romance. Between.

Between the president they do what which he declares the strongest alliance US alliance in the region. In addition to the golfing the president today met the emperor of Japan which is a big deal here 83 year old emperor up. He still went to the Imperial Palace. And you and I were marking Catherine earlier these are sort of thorny encounters for American friends. You do you know all about this you know all about this seven season talking more about that but when. He greeted the hampered in any event. Things are wrong.

Respect and appreciation for you we use the restroom read earlier tonight. It was a lot of fun and downing and by the staff there sign of appreciation. Through catches you off guard people Boeing over time so it's not a surprise that the president. Out to the emperor of Japan.
