The group enjoyed a lively evening as the President revelled in his winner’s circle. Trump hopes to improve the United States’ relationship with Japan.
Earlier, Melania and Ivanka Trump joined President Trump aboard Air Force One as he provided a family welcome to the Japanese prime minister for their weekend getaway at Mar-a-Lago.

Ivanka Trump boarded the plane at Joint Base Andrews alongside her husband Jared, a top White House adviser, wearing an overcoat and her own shades on a blustery day.
The couple had both been spotted at the White House earlier Friday, as they walked along the colonnade within sight of press photographers.
