    Has he praised anything about Japan itself, or just Abe? Trump seems to me to reduce international diplomacy to solely interpersonal relationships between him and the leader - so I've seen praise of Macron, or of Abe, but not so much of the things that their country does. I'm asking legitimately, not rhetorically; there may be some good examples I'm not thinking of.

    I feel the earth, move, under my feet...I feel the goal post shifting...goal posts shifting....

    On a more serious note, I'll link to this article where at least he praises the alliance:
    He also promised that both countries will "invest heavily" to build up their defensive capabilities, which Trump says will ultimately "be impenetrable."
    Don't know if that will fulfill your requirements, but it was a really quick google search...
