Book about immigrants who raise a son to become president and destroy America from within

I read this book at least 15 years ago, probably more, but don't know title, author or when it was published.  It is about a Japanese plot where a family moves to the U.S. with the intent to have a son (or grandson, or possibly more than one generation out??) who is eligible to become president and who will make decisions to destroy the U.S.  I believe they were using nuclear weapons. 


Thanks for any help you can give!
