NEW YORK (Reuters) - The dollar extended earlier losses against the yen on Thursday after CNBC television reported that U.S. President Donald Trump told a Wall Street Journal columnist he might take on trade issues with Japan.

The greenback touched a session low of 110.51 yen in the wake of the CNBC report. At 4:20 p.m. (2020 GMT), it was down 0.75 percent at 110.69 yen.
