In an interview with the New York Times, US President Donald Trump spoke about not being able to discuss with the first lady of Japan Akie Abe beside whom he sat at a G20 conference because she does not speak English.

He said, “So, I was seated next to the wife of Prime Minister Abe, who I think is a terrific guy, and she’s a terrific woman, but she doesn’t speak English.”

The interviewer asked: Like, nothing, right? Like zero?

Trump said: “Like, not ‘hello’.”

But it turns out Akie Abe does speak English.

A video on YouTube shows first lady Abe giving an entire keynote speech in English at the High­‐Level Symposium on Coastal Resilience: The Road to Sendai on October 2, 2014.

Abe, who used to be a DJ, also worked for one of the largest advertising agencies in the world Dentsu Inc.

    Much as i am not a trump fan, isn’t this getting a bit much? the other time it was the polish first lady ignoring his handshake and reaching for melania’s hand instead, now this. I mean don’t get me wrong, the shade throwing is funny and creative but he is the president of the united states now, no longer the loud mouth reality TV host.

      No. If you dont want to be insulted and an insult is almost imminent, you an pretend to not speak English.

      He definitely is still the loud mouth reality TV host. Are you watching the news? He is on TV (Or Twitter) loud talking everyday.

    People should get over his whole Trump thing already . It don do. Uneccessary things to just have Trumps name on their lips every second . Distraction from actual problems in the world.
