In his first official visit to Asia, US President Donald Trump will visit Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines from November 5th to November 14th.
For Asian governments, the visit is a chance to address longstanding doubts over America’s interest in the region, while President Trump is expected to be assertive and pushy in demanding the best deals and concessions Washington can get in Asia.
In Asia, Trump will also be attending the APEC forum and the US-ASEAN Summit. High on the agenda will be North Korea’s nuclear threat.
