U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will seek common ground on how to deal with North Korea's nuclear challenge Tuesday amid fears in Tokyo that Trump might be prone to make too many concessions.Trump has forged close ties with Abe during his 15 months in power and the two have bonded over rounds of golf during Abe's last visit to Florida more than a year ago and Trump's visit to Tokyo last November.Abe also wants Trump to bring up Japanese citizens kidnapped by Pyongyang long ago.Abe told Japan's parliament last week he would ask Trump to seek elimination of all North Korean missiles that could reach Japan. While Trump has said he prefers bilateral trade deals over multilateral ones, because America can win a better deal with just one country, he recently instructed United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow to reopen talks for the United States to enter the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
