Trump told Shinzo Abe he’d ship 25 million Mexicans to Japan
President Donald Trump stunned his fellow world leaders at the G7 meeting when he said he would ship “25 million” Mexicans to Japan, which would result in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe losing his next election.
During the gathering in Quebec — which ended with Trump leaving early and refusing to sign the traditional joint communique — the president was talking about what he called Europe’s immigration problem when he turned his attention to the Japanese leader.
“Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon,” Trump said, the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a senior EU official who was in the room.
The commander-in-chief also raised eyebrows when the subject turned to Iran and terrorism.
“You must know about this, Emmanuel, because all the terrorists are in Paris,” he told French President Emmanuel Macron.
“A sense of irritation with Mr. Trump could be felt, but everyone tried to be rational and calm,” the official told the paper.
Trump arrived late to the gathering, left early, and later attacked Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau as “weak” after Trudeau said Canada would retaliate for tariffs on imported steel and aluminum imposed by the US.
While the president has insulted America’s longest allies, he had nothing but praise for brutal North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after their brief sitdown later in the week, calling him “a very smart guy” and “a great negotiator.”

Fingerprinting foreigners when entering Japan
As of November 20, 2007, all foreigners entering Japan must be biometrically registered (photograph and fingerprints) on arrival; this includes people living in Japan on visas as well as permanent residents.

Japan took 12... that is ten plus two, 12 refugees last year. It is a policy all countries should adopt.
日本接收了12个…去年是10 + 2，12个难民。这是所有国家都应该采取的政策。

The media and foreign leaders arent accustomed to someone that speaks plainly and leans towards hyperbole. Trump didnt say he was going to actually ship people to Japan, he meant that if Japan had 25 million immigrants show up, the politics of the country would completely change. This is true beyond a shadow of a doubt, especially now that the left protects the immigrants from needing to assimilate into their new home and instead caters to them in exchange for votes.
