“After my tour of Asia, all Countries dealing with us on TRADE know that the rules have changed”, Trump wrote on Twitter.
Observing that North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programmes threaten the entire world, he called on all nations to join the USA in ensuring the complete, verifiable, and total denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula. I’m very impressed. You stayed with us. They are putting your regime in grave danger.
“You will see numbers that you won’t believe over the years”, he said.
Trump’s “America First” message might go down well with his base back home, but it does little to reassure allies here that the United States is not turning its back on regional leadership and engagement, at a time when China is making its presence and its overseas investment felt.
“I think we’ll be going into some more details as to what we’re doing, as to what we accomplished”, he said.
After a campaign in which he routinely criticised China, for rapacious trading practices that have stolen American jobs and depressed American wages, Trump went to China and gave them a get-out-of-jail-free card, the Democratic Senator alleged.
“Family by family, city by city, the people of South Korea built this country into what is today, one of the great nations of the world”. ‘I’m very proud of you’. “In less than one lifetime, South Korea climbed from total devastation to among the wealthiest nations on Earth”, he said. The phrase had been used by Obama and it accords with history in so far as Indian cultural and trade influence was long bigger than China’s in much of Southeast Asia. Today, few are anxious about this anymore despite the fact that trade friction might increase as the two largest economies become more interdependent.
In Seoul, South Korea, Trump warned that “three of the largest aircraft carriers in the world” have been sent to the region in case North Korea refuses to make a deal on nuclear weapons.

When he ran for president, Trump was openly hostile to the idea of multilateral trade deals like the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he withdrew America from after taking office. Trump eventually said he believes the findings of the US intelligence community that Russian Federation did interfere, but Trump still wants to work with Putin on issues like Syria and North Korea. “Short and fat is not a nuclear strategy”, he said, adding that Washington’s approach to North Korea was fed by “whim, ego, and theatrical calculations of a fickle and uninformed president”. Extending the offer of a better future for North Korea, and personal engagement, offers another way to encourage talks.
Further video evidence showed the Japanese PM had tipped his fish food out first, and Mr Trump was simply following his lead. In Beijing, he embraced the Chinese leader unlike any USA president going back to Richard M. Nixon.
“The North Korean situation continues to be a problem”, Trump said on November 12 while in the Philippines. This was certainly no way to win friends and influence people in the rest of Asia which has relatively very fond memories of the thoughtful and dignified former president. I like him a lot; he likes me.
Trump kicked off his trip in Hawaii on November 3, before traveling to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
“We have to fix this”, he said, “because it just doesn’t work for our great American companies, and it doesn’t work for our great American workers”.
“You’re talking about millions and millions of lives”.
