President Trump is on a state visit to Japan

This is what he's accomplished so far:

North Korea fired off some small weapons, which disturbed some of my people, and others, but not me. I have confidence that Chairman Kim will keep his promise to me, & also smiled when he called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse. Perhaps that’s sending me a signal?

Great fun and meeting with Prime Minister @AbeShinzo. Numerous Japanese officials told me that the Democrats would rather see the United States fail than see me or the Republican Party succeed - Death Wish!

You can't make this stuff up. The president of the United States on a state visit to Japan takes the side of the North Korean dictator (and existential threat to Japan, by the way) and also says that both Kim Jong Un and Japanese leaders are hostile to the Democratic Party.

“Most leaders try to avoid engaging in domestic politics while on foreign soil; few if any have publicly sided with an autocrat against an American political rival.”

This isn't ok, it really isn't. I know he's a clown and we are supposed to take these tweets with a grain of salt. But that would be a mistake. Trump is being played from all sides on the global stage and it's making all of us less safe.
