Trump in Palm Beach Japanese Prime Minister

President Donald Trump is expected to arrive in Palm Beach Monday afternoon. Following a brief stop in Miami, the President will prepare for his Tuesday meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The two will discuss the bilateral trade relationship between the U.S. and Japan and focus on Trump’s upcoming meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Abe’s visit will mark his second trip to Mar-a-Lago. The Prime Minister stayed at Trump’s resort last year. During that visit, Kim Jong Un tested a ballistic missile.

Japan’s leader and his wife will depart South Florida on Wednesday.

Monday’s agenda includes a stopover in Hialeah for a roundtable discussion of the president’s $1.5 trillion tax cut package, which includes small business tax cuts and reductions for corporations as well as middle and low-income individuals and families.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Labor Secretary Alex Acosta and Small Business Administration head Linda McMahon are anticipated to join Trump in Hialeah.

Law enforcement and security measures around Mar-a-Lago have been heightened for the arrival of the U.S. President and Japanese Prime Minister.

Air Force One departed for Miami shortly after 10 a.m. on Monday. The roundtable meeting is set for early afternoon. The President is anticipated to arrive in Palm Beach just before 3 p.m.

Although originally thought to be leaving on Thursday, FAA reports now indicate Trump is likely to remain in South Florida several additional days and return to Washington on Sunday.
