Trump Tees It Up in Japan With Hideki Matsuyama

President Donald Trump made his way over to Japan on Saturday for a 13-day working tour through Asia, and the 45th POTUS went straight to work… on the golf course.

Trump, wearing a bulky bullet-proof vest, surrounded by a massive security detail, played his inaugural round in Asia alongside Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and World No. 4 Hideki Matsuyama – “two wonderful people,” according to a Trump tweet.

The powerful threesome played at Kasumigaseki Country Club, the host course of the 2020 Olympic Games.

Trump teed it up with Abe earlier this year, when he hosted the Japanese PM at Trump National in Jupiter (FL).
