After Pearl Harbor, Trump embarks on Asia tour

After Pearl Harbor, Trump embarks on Asia tour

Trump tried to seize on Democratic infighting ahead of those votes, fired up by explosive revelations from a top Democratic operative that the 2016 presidential primaries were tipped in Clinton's favor.

U.S. President Donald Trump, who embarked on a 12-day trip to Asia Friday, said he would extend his visit in the Philippines by one day to attend the East Asia Summit.

The trip is stoking fears North Korea will present a show of force, Politico reported.

Once he lands, The President is expected to speak with U.S. and Japanese forces at an air base later Saturday, to discuss the importance of combating North Korean threats.

Mueller also revealed that Trump campaign aide George Papadopoulos had lied to the FBI about his contacts with Kremlin-connected officials, but then turned informant. But a very, very big focus is going to be on fair trade.

The anti-Trump protesters reportedly requested over 100 rallies to be held in Seoul during Trump's two-day stay.

"The greatest concern is that Trump may prove to be a 'wild card' in the carefully orchestrated and balanced geo-politics of the region", said Annelise Riles, a professor of law and anthropology at Cornell University.

Officials on both sides of the Pacific are concerned North Korea is planning a provocation meant to disrupt President Trump's trip to Asia.

And they want him to keep up the pressure on North Korea with sanctions.

Now China has championed the American mission while the U.S. retreats from the founding vision to herald President Trump's "America First" strategy.

Although U.S. presidents visiting Korea often tour the demilitarized zone, Trump will not do so.

On Sunday, the two leaders are scheduled to play golf together with Japanese professional golfer Hideki Matsuyama at a country club just outside Tokyo before having dinner together.

"The United States has wanted the South Korean government to take further steps to sanction the North. Unilateral sanctions by South Korea wouldn't have much practical impact but have a symbolic importance,"€ the official said. They include China's Xi Jinping, whom Trump has likened to "a king", and the Philippines' Rodrigo Duterte, who has sanctioned the extrajudicial killings of drug dealers. All U.S. presidents except one since Ronald Reagan have visited the DMZ in a sign of solidarity with Seoul.

"What is there to lose by attempting to talk peace with North Korea as I have done with the Palestinians and have done with the Israelis?"

The South's President Moon Jae-In has insisted that no military action on the peninsula can be taken without Seoul's approval. But fiery threats against the North could resonate differently than they do from the distance of Washington.

During the campaign, Trump said he'd be willing to see Japan develop its own nuclear arsenal, upending decades of nonproliferation policy.

The US President has denied allegations - including claims from actor Samuel L Jackson and retired boxer Oscar De La Hoya - that he cheats at golf.
