Donald Trump calls Asia trip 'fruitful' with trade progress, nuclear reassurance

TRUMP’S ASIA TRIP BOLSTERS AMERICA FIRST

Asian leaders banked on the fact that flattery works - and they were right.

"So we'll be making a major statement on Wednesday".

On Friday, officials from the other 11 TPP countries announced the completion of a trade pact that excluded the U.S. "Trade has become a very important element of our relationship". "Even Donald Trump understands that". As a result, stock prices of USA defense companies such as Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Northrop have been skyrocketing as they can sell expensive weapons such as Aegis missile defense system to Japan and South Korea.

Both Trump and Xi are mutually committed "to the complete denuclearization of North Korea", Trump said, adding both leaders agreed "to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons its reckless and unsafe path".

In Seoul, Trump delivered an address that admirably spelled out the horrors of North Korea - not just its relentless pursuit of a nuclear arsenal but also its tyrannical enslavement of its people. "We will defend our common security, our shared prosperity, and our sacred liberty", Trump said. Together, we have, in our power, to finally liberate this region, and the world, from this very serious nuclear business.

A November 12 Tweet by Trump might point to Trump's change in strategy.

"Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me 'old, ' when I would NEVER call him 'short and fat?' Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend - and maybe someday that will happen!" the president tweeted.

During his bilateral meeting with Quang, Trump also offered his services as a mediator for the South China Sea dispute.

Soldier, militant killed in Kashmir gunfight
Srinagar :An army man and a militant were killed in ongoing gunfight in Kulgam district of southern Kashmir on Tuesday. However, when the security forces were moving towards particular area, militants opened fire, they said.

What was apparent during the trip was that Trump did not feel above jumping into the sometimes idiosyncratic traditions of these worldwide summits.

"It's disgraceful. And I don't blame any of those countries". "We know already that Donald Trump is attracted to strong men, he's attracted to people who exhibit these sort of authoritarian or even fascist tendencies".

'Because - the press, I have to tell you, I'm very impressed.

President Donald Trump was disappointed, during his visit to Da Nang, Vietnam, not to get the formal meeting with Russia's President Vladimir Putin that he sought to gain Russia's critical cooperation in isolating North Korea.

Trump spent the bulk of his public appearances emphasising the need to reduce trade deficits, and also pushed for Asian nations to buy United States military equipment. "What we will no longer do is enter into large agreements that tie our hands, surrender our sovereignty, and make meaningful enforcement practically impossible".

"We've explained that the United States is open for trade but we want reciprocal, we want fair trade for the United States", he told reporters in Manila during a summit of Asian leaders, where integrating economies and curbing protectionism has been on the agenda.

President Xi, whose country's rise has been driven by large-scale government-planning, immediately followed Trump on the stage in Danang.
