Trump Praises Military in Japan, Sends Warning to Tyrants

President Donald Trump praised American airmen and Marines, as well as Japan’s Self-Defense Force, during a visit to the Yokota Air Base in Japan on Nov. 5.

Trump also issued a stark warning against dictators and other regimes not to underestimate America’s resolve.

“Together with our allies, America’s warriors are prepared to defend our nation using the full range of our unmatched capabilities,” Trump said.

Trump praised the troops as the greatest hope for people who desire to live in freedom and harmony. While at the same time being the greatest threats to tyrants and dictators who seek to prey on the innocent.

“History has proven over and over that the road of the tyrant is a steady march toward poverty, suffering, and servitude,” Trump said.

“But the path of strong nations and free people, certain of their values and confident in their futures, is a proven path toward prosperity and peace. We cherish our cultures, we embrace our values, and we always fight for what we believe in.”

Trump is currently in Japan as part of a 12-day tour in Asia. One of the key objectives of the trip is to work with other countries in the region to counter the North Korean nuclear threat.

President Trump has vowed not to accept a nuclear-armed North Korea, and is using diplomacy, economic sanctions, and the threat of military force, to get the regime in Pyongyang to the negotiating table.

So far North Korea has been unwilling to negotiate abandoning its nuclear weapons program. However, there are increasing signs that new and stronger sanctions imposed on North Korea are having an effect.

In a letter by North Korea’s U.N. envoy, sent on Friday, the regime complains of the significant impact the sanctions are having.
