Trump arrives at Tokyo palace for banquet

(AP) - President Donald Trump has arrived at Tokyo's Imperial Palace for a banquet in his honor.

The president and first lady Melania Trump are being hosted by the new Emperor Naruhito and his wife, Empress Masako. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife, Akie, also are expected to attend the black-tie dinner with scores of other guests.

The meal caps a busy Monday that made Trump the first word leader to meet with Naruhito since his May 1 ascension to the throne.

Trump then spent hours meeting with Abe to discuss issues including North Korea and trade.
