While most of America was asleep, Donald Trump lobbed a new accusation at Democrats by saying they have a "Death Wish" for America, and then adding they would rather see the U.S. fail than see him succeed.

Trump, who is in Japan meeting Prime Minsiter Abe, also insisted that Japanese officials agree with him.

"Great fun and meeting with Prime Minister . Numerous Japanese officials told me that the Democrats would rather see the United States fail than see me or the Republican Party succeed - Death Wish!" the president tweeted, before later adding that that he believes his trade negotiations are going well with Japan -- but Americans will have to wait until July to see any possible progress.
