Japan Philippines
FILE - In this Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016 file photo, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, right, is shown the way by Chinese President Xi Jinping before a signing ceremony in Beijing, China. Japanese officials are wary ahead of the arrival of outspoken Duterte. Their concern is not only about his foreign policy toward the U.S., but also about his informal style. They are paranoid about him chewing gum in front of the Emperor. Duterte arrives in Tokyo later Tuesday for a three-day visit, his first as Philippine leader. (AP Photo/Ng Han Guan, Pool, File)
Takata-Air Bag Danger
FILE - In this Thursday, Nov. 20, 2014, file photo, Senate Commerce Committee member Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., displays the parts and function of a defective airbag made by Takata of Japan that has been linked to multiple deaths and injuries in cars driven in the United States, during the committee's hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington. Despite thousands of mailed notices and warnings of grave danger, since June 2016, Honda is still struggling to fix 300,000 cars with super-dangerous Takata air bag inflators inside their steering wheels. Nelson says Honda should do more. “No responsible automaker should be so slow in repairing defective vehicles where there’s up to a 50 percent chance a driver could be killed or seriously injured if an air bag deploys,” he said in a statement.

FILE - In this Aug. 6, 2016, file photo, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, addresses the crowd gathered at the Fancy Farm Picnic in Fancy Farm Ky. McConnell has never had much to say about Donald Trump. But lately, he has fallen completely silent.
