TOKYO (Reuters) - The United States and Japan hope to have more to announce very soon on a trade deal, President Donald Trump said on Monday after meeting Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe during a state visit.

Trump’s goal was to remove trade barriers so as to give U.S. exports a fair footing in Japan, he added.
