Our President earlier in the day enjoyed a round of golf with PM Abe.

While President Trump and Prime Minister Abe were playing golf, Madame Akie Abe took First Lady Melania Trump to the incredible Mori Building Digital Art Museum.

Excellent news summary of the past week (May 19-25).

European Union Elections are done. The results are starting to come in.

From the article linked above:

Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally scored a first-place finish in the EU election in France, besting President Emmanuel Macron’s Renaissance list, according to early projections of the French vote — a major victory for populist, Euroskeptic forces.

National Rally, a rebranding of Le Pen’s National Front party, scored about 24 percent of the vote, compared to roughly 22.5 percent for Macron’s centrist-liberal party, according to two initial projections.

From the article linked above:

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s junior coalition partner took a beating at the polls on Sunday, with Germany’s Social Democrats suffering a sharp drop in the vote for European Parliament and losing the race in the city-state of Bremen for the first time since World War II.

The poor showing by the SPD threatens to revive calls from the party’s restive base to bring down the government after reluctantly agreeing to enter a third alliance with Merkel 14 months ago. Support nearly halved to 15.5% in the European ballot, while in its traditional stronghold of Bremen, the party came in second to Merkel’s Christian Democrats, according to an initial count from public broadcaster ARD.

I will be putting updated results as they come in into the comment section of the article throughout the night.
