Trump Promises 'Major Statement' on Trade After Trip

Trump Promises 'Major Statement' on Trade After Trip

In his closed door address to the East Asia Summit, which among others was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Trump told leaders to address four security challenges - North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes; unresolved disputes in the South China Sea; terrorism and several humanitarian crises to achieve the goal of a free and open Indo-Pacific region, where strong, sovereign and independent nations control their own destinies.

However, after a gruelling 12-day trip across five countries, Trump opted to get on Air Force One and fly back to Washington.

During brief remarks to reporters, Trump said he and Duterte have "had a great relationship" but avoided questions on whether he'd raise human rights issues.

Trump told reporters traveling with him to Hanoi on Saturday that Putin had again vehemently denied the allegations.

Trump said the U.S. also remained deeply concerned about the use of chemical weapons by state and non-state actors.

Trump was in the Philippines on Monday and remains dogged by things he has said, and has not said, about Russian Federation.

An administration official said Monday that a recommendation had been formally presented to the president and he was considering it.

On Sunday, he tried to have it both ways, saying he believes both the US intelligence agencies when they say Russia meddled and Russian President Vladimir Putin's sincerity in claiming that his country did not.

Sessions gives Trump what he wants - a return to 'Crooked Hillary'
At some point the Justice Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation , must do what is right and proper. That's out of 53 US attorneys nominated so far by President Donald Trump , according to the department.

"The key for us is to ensure very close trilateral cooperation so as to bring peace and stability on the ground", said the Japanese leader, who has been displaying a united front against North Korea with Trump.

"Just arrived at #ASEAN50 in the Philippines for my final stop with World Leaders".

Trump and Duterte shook hands twice and exchanged pleasantries before the leaders posed for a group photo and everyone filed into dinner. "Human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines' fight against illegal drugs". The summit was held approximately two hours later than scheduled, which is believed to have led to Trump's absence.

The US president concluded on Monday that the trip had been a success and no American leader had ever been granted such a welcome in Asia.

But Trump also says he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin when Putin claims his country did no such thing.

Trump also the trip had been "very fruitful" for the United States and pointed to the warm welcomes he had received in capitals like Tokyo, Seoul and Beijing.

Trump is slated to attend a pair of worldwide summits and meet with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
