The internet thinks Japan’s First Lady Akie Abe feigned inability to Speak English to avoid Trump


In an interview with the New York Times, US President Donald Trump spoke about not being able to discuss with the first lady of Japan Akie Abe beside whom he sat at a G20 conference because she does not speak English.

He said, “So, I was seated next to the wife of Prime Minister Abe, who I think is a terrific guy, and she’s a terrific woman, but she doesn’t speak English.”

The interviewer asked: Like, nothing, right? Like zero?

Trump said: “Like, not ‘hello’.”

But it turns out Akie Abe does speak English.

A video on YouTube shows first lady Abe giving an entire keynote speech in English at the High­‐Level Symposium on Coastal Resilience: The Road to Sendai on October 2, 2014.

Abe, who used to be a DJ, also worked for one of the largest advertising agencies in the world Dentsu Inc.
