Trump Hasn’t Won Yet But There Are Already Dozens Of Books in Japan About His Presidency

Donald Trump may or may not be the next American president.


But even the possibility has unleashed a torrent of books here dedicated to a
Trump presidency, with titles like “Collapsing America: The World Will Go Mad If There’s A President Trump” and “Trump Fever: America’s ‘Anti-intellectualism.’”
There’s even a gossipy book called “Special Live US Presidential Election” that features a cartoon of Trump, as a joker, flipping the bird on the front.

This is what people in Tokyo's Shiba park think of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump(Yuki Oda, Jason Aldag, Osman Malik/The Washington Post)
Japan, the United States’ biggest ally in Asia, hasn’t been much of an election issue in recent decades. So, viewed from Tokyo, this season has been noteworthy in that Japan often gets a mention, almost always from the Republican presidential candidate. Trump has repeatedly said that the countries’ security alliance is “not a fair deal” because the United States is obligated to come to Japan’s defense, but not vice versa.

In the first debate with Hillary Clinton, Trump said that the United States was losing “billions and billions of dollars” to Japan.
“They should be paying us, because we are providing tremendous service, and we're losing a fortune,” he has said.

This is not true. Japan pays about $2 billion a year to host American military bases and 54,000 American military personnel on its territory, or $4.5 billion if you take into account all base-related expenses, including rents and salaries for local staff. For its part, the United States has budgeted $5.5 billion for its military presence in Japan in the current year.


Analysts have pointed out that unless the United States disbanded the military units stationed in Asia, bringing them home to American soil wouldn’t save much money.
But the attention on Japan this election season has given rise to a little Trump publishing industry here. These are some of the two dozen-odd books that have been published this year.

  5. I recently saw the 2nd presidential debate between Trump and Hillary,a lot of questions came to my mind.

    What if all these were planned just to ensure Hillary gets to the white house?

    What if Trump has always being a stooge?

    Trump never answers a question directed at him and at the end of the day ,he makes hillary appear way better.

    Now republicans are gradually claiming not to be in support of him.

    Yes, I SMELL LIES and political mass hypnosis...

    I'm not saying Hillary is a bad person but truth be told, it all appeared as a joke when trump made his intention known,that he was running for president and He became the party's flag bearer before we could say jack. Now his party members aren't publicly not supporting him as if they didn't know he was when they all gave him the ticket, they are not saying they would vote for Hillary but we all know they would exercise their franchise.

    Well my mind still tells me that ,Trump's running for president was all staged managed so that ,Americans can vote in Hillary even if they never liked her.
    Call it propaganda I don't care.IJS

    1. You may be right...trump is opposite of everything America wants in president.. in politics anything is possible.

    2. The same thought came to me. Because he is making a complete mockery of the election. Hilary is the next POTUS, but for 4 years before the Republican will bring a credible candidate. But Trump is a likeable fellow. He has a brand and personality you just cannot ignore.
