Trump’s Asia trip: Stops in Japan, China and beyond

President Trump was in Japan on Monday as part of a trip that will later take him to South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

“The president’s trip will focus on three goals,” National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster told reporters last week during a White House briefing. “First, strengthening international resolve to denuclearize North Korea. Second, promote a free and open Indo-Pacific region. Third, advance American prosperity through fair and reciprocal trade and economic practices.”

“President Trump will reiterate the plain fact that North Korea threatens not just our allies South Korea, Japan and the U.S.,” but, McMaster said, is also “a threat to the entire world.”

McMaster also said that Trump “will continue to call on all responsible nations, especially those with the most influence over North Korea, to isolate the North Korean regime economically and politically.”

    Trade stability between the US & China is dependent upon a solution that brings an exit of the NK despot. China sells a significant percentage of it’s products to the US & a halt or even a major slowdown of that trade would cause chaos in their economy. At the point where The little despots presence becomes too economically expensive to tolerate they will solve it
    The US doesn’t have the range of options that the Chinese enjoy.
    That doesn’t mean that the US can’t terminate the problem if that becomes the last resort.
    It does however mean that the Chinese can solve the issue using non military options that we do not poses. I believe they will act fairly soon.

  • I believe that President Trump is a genius and will succeed in his goal on this trip to stop the Korean from bombing whoever, whenever and wherever he chooses.

      I hope you are right, but I think that NK is going to have to be taken out at some point if they don’t radically change, Ding-a-ling Un is going to have to leave the scene and whoever takes over is going to have to have a lot of sanity about him, which Ding-a-ling doesn’t have.
