Trump Promises Major Announcement on His Return to Washington after Asia Tour

MANILA – The president of the United States announced on Tuesday that he would make a major statement upon his arrival at the White House after a two-week tour of Asia, during which he visited Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

“I will be making a major statement from the @WhiteHouse upon my return to D.C. Time and date to be set,” Donald Trump wrote on Twitter.

Shortly after that tweet, Trump told reporters that his first trip to Asia had been “tremendously successful.”

Trump departed from Manila on Tuesday aboard the Air Force One presidential aircraft after participating in meetings related to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year.

The ASEAN comprises of Myanmar, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.

In addition to the ASEAN heads of state and government, also present in the Philippine capital were leaders of Australia, Canada, China, South Korea, India, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, the European Union and the United Nations.

Both in Manila and throughout his trip, Trump championed his administration’s policy of favoring “fair and reciprocal” bilateral agreements over large-scale multilateral deals, and sought to rally international support around increasing sanctions against the North Korean regime and the Islamic State terror organization.

He also held his first bilateral meeting with the Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, during which both stressed the importance of respecting life and human rights, but avoided mentioning the violent so-called “war on drugs” in the island nation which has left over 7,000 people dead since Duterte took office in June last year.
