Transcript for Trump meets with Japanese prime minister
Overseas now from Japan, president trump with a full schedule of activities that were close to his heart. A round of golf with prime minister Abe, then awarding the president's cup trophy to a sumo wrestling champion. But the president tweeting warm words to Kim Jong-un and nasty ones to 2020 foe Joe Biden. Here's Tara Palmeri. Reporter: The president getting a lavish layout from the Japanese, catered to indulge trump. The showman. A ringside seat at a championship sumo match. The president and first lady watching the intense matches. As sumo grand champion, I hereby award you the united States president's cup.

I think we need to keep our eyes on North Korea. Tara, joining us from Tokyo. Joe Biden's camp is firing back at the president for his tweet? Reporter: Tom, an aide for Biden is slamming president trump for amplifying the attack. Calling the tweet erratic and unhinged.
