U.S. President Donald Trump hosts Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft for dinner at Mar-a-Lago, his resort in Palm Beach, Florida. ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe dined with New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft at Mar-a-Lago, Trump's resort in Palm Beach, Florida on Friday (February 10). Trump and Abe opened a new chapter in U.S.-Japan relations with Trump abruptly setting aside campaign pledges to force Tokyo to pay more for U.S. defense aid. The two leaders appeared to have established a quick friendship during a day of talks at the White House and a flight together aboard Air Force One to Florida for a weekend of golf. The Mar-a-Lago visit is Trump's first use of his Florida getaway for diplomatic purposes. It is also the most time Trump will have spent with a foreign leader since taking power last month and his second face-to-face meeting with a key ally after talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May two weeks ago. Trump hosted Abe at Trump Tower last year in his first talks with a foreign leader after his surprise win in the November presidential election. U.S. First Lady Melania Trump and Abe's wife also joined the group for dinner. Kraft's New England Patriots football team won the Super Bowl last Sunday (February 5) after engineering the greatest comeback in the game's history to claim a breathtaking 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
