President Donald Trump meets with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over Memorial Day weekend, just days after his administration said auto imports are a threat to national security.
Japan has a nearly $68 billion trade surplus with the United States, much of it due to auto exports. Trump would like Japan to make more cars here. Japanese carmakers say they’ve already invested about $51 billion in the U.S. Experts say it could be hard for them to do more.
