Washington: He played with Tiger Woods earlier this year, but on the golf course Saturday US President Donald Trump faced an easier -- and more familiar -- opponent: Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

With Abe in Washington as talks between the two allies to carve out a trade deal continue, the golf-mad pair set off in the morning for the Trump National Golf Club in Sterling, Virginia, around 30 miles (48 kilometers) from the White House.

 

The two leaders struck up something of a "bromance" during Trump's visit in November 2017 as they traded fist-bumps and tucked into burgers at a golf club outside Tokyo.

And Japan, which closely aligns its foreign policy with the United States, has publicly backed Trump's drive to make peace with North Korea -- although it has been cautious on chances for success.
