Interview of Former U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta (JAPAN Forward)

A second-generation Japanese American, Mineta, 87, has had a successful career in government and politics in the U.S., yet he is concerned that President Donald Trump’s divisive words are undermining America’s gains.

In an interview with The Sankei Shimbun and JAPAN Forward on November 9, Mineta also talked about the need for greater bipartisan cooperation in U.S. Congress now that the Democrats and Republicans each control one of the two chambers.

Mineta emphasized that U.S.-Japan ties have remained strong, even as the attitude of China, South Korea, and North Korea toward Japan has deteriorated.
