Did the prime minister of Japan hold a "Trump 2024" sign during remarks made alongside Kamala Harris? No, that's not true: A video showing Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga with a "Make America Great Again" hat and a sign in support of Donald Trump has clearly been manipulated. Other video of the event shows him as he was, dressed in a suit, sporting a blue tie and a white face mask -- no hat and no sign in sight.

Suga and Harris both delivered remarks on April 16, 2021, before a bilateral meeting with President Joe Biden. The White House released a copy of their comments, which can be seen here. The White House also released a video of their remarks:
As can be seen in the original video, Suga is not wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, nor is he holding a Trump sign. The prime minister is dressed in a suit, wearing a blue tie and a face mask.
Suga's visit to the White House on April 16, 2021, marked the first in-person visit to the United States of a world leader since Biden and Harris took office.
