Former embarrassment Barack Obama often bowed to the whims of foreign leaders. In the case of Japan’s emperor, Obama literally bowed down before him. President Trump recently met the same emperor, except he showed how the most powerful man in the world is supposed to handle that situation.
From BizPac Review:
Trump just met the Japanese emperor … here is the REAL deal about the bow
President Donald Trump met the Japanese emperor Monday morning, but opted for a strong handshake over a bow.

Trump kicks off his 12-day tour of Asia in Japan
US President Donald Trump has landed in Japan, the first Asian country he is visiting during his 12-day tour of the region.
Trump already golfed and dined with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who will host the US president for a meeting with families of Japanese citizens abducted by North Korea. Trump is also scheduled to meet with American and Japanese service members, and said shortly after landing that “it’s expected” he’ll meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the trip.
North Korea will undoubtedly be one of the topics discussed by Trump and Abe. During a congratulatory call after Japan’s recent snap elections, the two leaders reportedly discussed being united on the need to increase pressure on the regime.
Overall, Trump’s Asia tour aims to “underscore his commitment to longstanding United States alliances and partnerships, and reaffirm United States leadership in promoting a free and open Indo-Pacific region,” the White House said.
