LOS ANGELES – U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is considering visiting Japan this summer for the Olympic Games in Tokyo, a trip that would take him off the campaign trail as he seeks re-election.
Trump was asked about the Summer Games in Tokyo, which begin July 24, during a meeting with officials involved in the Olympic Games set to be held in Los Angeles in 2028.
Trump said he had been invited by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
“We’ll make that determination. We haven’t made it yet. We might. We’re going to try if we can,” he said.
Trump is to travel to India next week but is believed to have a limited schedule of foreign travel this year as he seeks a second four-year term in the Nov. 3 election.
