The gun attack didn't appear likely to alter his schedule of events
Trump adopted an assertive stance toward the US trade relationship with Japan
Waking in Asia at the start of his marathon diplomatic tour, President Donald Trump confronted another mass shooting back home, a tragedy that’s likely to overshadow his forceful calls for cooperation on North Korea and better trade terms with Asian nations.
Trump addressed the shooting during morning remarks to business leaders at the American embassy in Tokyo, calling the massacre inside a Texas church an “act of evil.”
But the gun attack didn’t appear likely to alter his schedule of events, which includes a midday news conference at the neo-Baroque Akasaka Palace in central Tokyo.
