“We have certain disagreements with respect to some of the trading issues. We’ll iron those out hopefully,” Kudlow told reporters during a briefing ahead of a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“The United States would probably like to see a free trade agreement come out at some point with Japan,” he said.
