Japan Hit By Earthquake As Trump Arrives For State Visit: Report

An earthquake hit Japan on Saturday as President Trump arrived for his 4-day state visit, Reuters reports.

The epicenter of the magnitude 5 earthquake was in Chiba, around 48 miles east of Tokyo, according to the country’s metrological agency.

The quake caused buildings to shake, according to local media, but there is reportedly no visible damage and no threat of a tsunami.

Trump’s plane landed just before 5 p.m. local time at the Haneda Airport, with the president and first lady Melania Trump greeted by multiple U.S. and Japanese officials on the tarmac, according to White House pool reports.

The president then headed to a reception with more than two dozen Japanese business leaders at the U.S. ambassador’s house.

Trump is also scheduled to play golf and attend a sumo tournament on Sunday.
