VOX POPULI: Suga doesn’t deserve to have ‘last hurrah’ with trip to the U.S.

15 0 0

Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga set out on his U.S. visit on the evening of Sept. 23.

I assumed he was headed to the United Nations General Assembly to deliver his customary address. But I was told he will be attending an important meeting in Washington, D.C., which must be extremely unusual for a prime minister who will be stepping down shortly.

Prior to this trip, the prime minister's office marked Suga's 365th day in office by releasing a video titled "Suga Seiken Ichinenkan no Kiseki" (The Suga administration's one-year track record).

Suga is shown directing his COVID-19 response measures. There are also scenes from the Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics, the inauguration of the Digital Affairs Agency, and so on.
