Akio Toyoda, Chairman of the Japan Automobile Manufacturers Association, said that the Japanese automobile makers lobby were extremely disappointed by the US President Trump’s comment.
Trump said that imported vehicles were a threat to the US national security.
Toyoda noted: “We are dismayed to hear a message suggesting that our long-time contributions of investment and employment in the United States are not welcomed.”
This comes ahead of the US-Japan trade talks due later today.
