Trump, Abe set golf date for start of US leader’s Asia tour

FILE – This combination file photo shows Donald Trump, right, stands on the 14th fairway during a pro-am round of the AT&T National golf tournament at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. on June 27, 2012, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, left, playing golf in Yamanakako village, west of Tokyo, on July 23, 2016. Trump will start his first trip to Asia as the U.S. president in November 2017 in somewhat predictable fashion: with a round of golf. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told Trump on a phone call Monday, Oct. 23, 2017 that a joint outing with Japanese pro Hideki Matsuyama has been set up for Nov. 5, the start of a lengthy Asia tour for the American leader.
