President Donald Trump told Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that his nation’s economy isn’t quite as strong as that of the United States, a jibe that came as Trump continued his charges of unfair trade practices by Japan.
After complimenting the strength of Japan’s economy, Trump went on to say, "I don’t know if it’s as good as ours. I think not. OK? We’re going to try to keep it that way. And you’ll be second."
