The lack of transparency during Trump’s transitionary period is MIND-BOGGLING!
Donald Trump had his first face-to-face meeting with a foreign dignitary Thursday when he sat down with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe – and brought daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner along too.
“As an outcome of today’s discussions, I am convinced Mr Trump is a leader in whom I can have great confidence,” said Abe, whose country was troubled by some of Trump’s election promises. He described the atmosphere as “warm”.
But exactly what was discussed in the 90-minute conversation remains unknown – as do Kushner and Ivanka’s roles in the meeting.
So the prime minister of Japan flies to New York to meet with Trump, and Trump shows up to shoot the breeze with him all by himself. No advisors. No State Department briefing. No prep. Just Trump and the Japanese team.
