According to Trump, who is on a state visit to Tokyo, Japan "has just announced its intention to acquire 105 new F-35 stealth aircraft."

"This purchase will give Japan the largest F-35 fleet among all US allies," the American leader said.

Trump said, speaking at a press conference with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, that he hopes to announce a trade deal with an Asian country in the near future.

Trump called the US trade imbalance with Japan "incredibly large", but expressed hope that this problem will be solved.

Previously, he clearly linked trade and security issues, which worried Japan.

“When I talk about security threats, I’m talking about balance,” said Trump, adding that Japan bought “a huge amount” of US military equipment.
