That makes her smart

Post by Idéfix on Thu Jul 20, 2017 2:40 pm

The Japanese prime minister's wife speaks fluent English and has given public speeches in English. But when she sat next to Donald Trump at a G20 dinner, the predisent walked away thinking she doesn't speak a word of English, "like, not 'hello!'"

The First Lady of Japan might have pretended she didn't speak English to avoid talking to Donald Trump.

President Trump, who is under criminal investigation for obstruction of justice, was seated next to Akie Abe, wife of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo, at a dinner to mark the end of the G20 summit in Hamburg on July 8.

But in an interview with the New York Times, published last night, he said conversation at the dinner was not forthcoming with Mrs Abe.
