“Japan’s former Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was a great friend of mine, President Trump and the United States” Congressman Long said. “I am saddened and shaken by this senseless loss for his family, Japan and the world. As Co-chair of the Congressional Study Group on Japan, I lead a bipartisan delegation to Japan for 7 years.
