Oh no! Prime Minister Abe tumbles into bunker during round with Trump

In the video, Prime Minister Abe, who hosted Trump and Hideki Matsuyama at the Kasumigaseki Country Club on Sunday, hits a shot from the fairway bunker.

Donald Trump and his Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe, started by delicately spooning out the food into the pond to the waiting koi, which had been rounded up by a clapping Japanese aide. "He served Trump a lot of delicious food but in return all he got was being forced to promise to buy more weapons", said a Twitter user.

Abe also called Trump his "dear friend" and hailed the benefits of what he called "golf diplomacy".

While the internet pored over the swing video that President Trump tweeted from their round together, a Japanese television station captured a far more compelling video.

When the embarrassing incident occurred at Kasumigaseki Country Club on November 5, Trump apparently didn't even notice, the Daily Mail reports.

He also downplayed the potentially contentious nature of the negotiations, though the Japanese government has not shown much appetite for striking a new bilateral trade agreement. By the time Trump called Abe to wave him off, however, Trump said Abe was already on the plane to NY. "A round of golf with a marvelous friend (President Donald J. Trump), full of spirited conversation".

The U.S. leader, who will visit South Korea on the trip, has rattled some allies with his vow to "totally destroy" North Korea if it threatens the United States and with his dismissal of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as a "rocket man" on a suicide mission. The Trumps have since flown to South Korea and arrived in China on Wednesday.

The 71-year-old Trump said the length of the trip would not be an issue for him. "So I saw him and it worked out just fine", Trump recalled, saying, from that moment on, they'd been close.

"I don't know if it's as good as ours, I think not". The 40-year-old owner of two local Munch's Burger Shack became an overnight success after his cuisine was deemed worthy of the US president and Japanese prime minister, soranews24 reported.
