Trump complains about US defense pact with Japan, blaming G20 countries

Just before taking off on Air Force One for the G20 summit in Osaka, President Donald Trump complained about the longstanding U.S. defense pact with Japan, America's closest ally in Asia, and bashed some member countries for using the United States as a "piggy bank."

The president accused member countries of the G20 -- specifically close allies -- including Japan, Germany, and Canada -- of abusing the United States in trade and defense. The president said he took particular issue with a historic postwar U.S.-Japan defense treaty that states the United States will come to defense of Japan if it is attacked and allows the United States to have a military presence on the island nation.

“If Japan is attacked, we will fight World War III. We will go in and protect them with our lives and with our treasure,” Trump said during an interview on Fox Business Network with anchor Maria Bartiromo. “But if we are attacked, Japan doesn’t have to help us at all. They can watch on a Sony television, the attack."

Bloomberg News reported earlier this week that president has considered pulling out of the defense pact in private, but the crumbling of the agreement would have a significant impact on the United States' influence in Asia and leave the island nation of Japan, surrounded by nuclear threats on all sides, to fend for itself.
