Trump began the dinner at Mar-a-Lago’s crowded patio restaurant by talking up Kraft and joking that the assembled U.S. and Japanese press had heard Kraft was there.
Trump said Kraft ‘‘knew he was going to win the game, even when he was down 28-3.’’
The president also quipped about all the interpreters who had pulled up chairs to their not-so-large table.
‘‘We need more interpreters,’’ he joked. ‘‘They don’t play games.’’
