英会話ブログ その797       Trump Bashes Japan

2016/04/22

Donald Trump continues to win primaries in his "bid" (try) to become the Republican nominee for president of the United States.

He is "bathing" in the spotlight of his victories and seems very confident he will receive the Republican nomination.

"Bathing" means of course simply to take a bath, however, in the previous sentence, it means, to be immersed in the glory, the light of victory.

CNN covered his primary election wins in Mississsippi and Michigan with extended coverage.  They gave the billionaire bigot almost an hour of air time to make a  "rambling" (not clear, not logical) victory speech.

He used this valuable coverage time to advertize his luxury properties, his steaks, his wines and his water.  He also attacked the press, politicians , the military, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, the Mixicans, the Chinese and Japan.

He "blasted" (attacked someone or something verbally using very strong language) the Japanese government's currency manipultation.  He is angry about the trade deficit which he claimed. is 158 billion dollars a year.  He is also angry that Japan sells millions of cars in the U,S.A and America sells very few in Japan.                                       (V.C)
