He said:

"I have to wish you all a very happy Memorial Day. On this Memorial Day evening in the United States, Americans are concluding a sacred day of remembrance, reflection and prayer."

Prior to Trump's speech, the First Couple had the opportunity to visit the J.S. Kaga, a Japanese helicopter carrier docked closed to the bay, and the President also delivered the same Memorial Day message to the Japanese forces.


On Monday, Trump made history for becoming the first foreign leader to meet Naruhito, the Emperor of Japan, who ascended to the throne on May 1, as well as his wife, Empress Masako.

The meeting took place in the morning and the Trumps even presented the imperial leaders with gifts, such as a hand-made 1938 viola, a signed picture of American composure Aaron Copland and a signed photo of himself.
