Trump to stay extra day in Philippines to attend East Asia Summit

Local residents have been distributing an image on fliers and social media with the words "Hawaii 3, Trump 0", referencing the state's judicial challenges to the president's multiple travel bans, the Los Angeles Times reported.

President Trump has chose to attend a summit meeting of Pacific Rim leaders in the Philippines on November 14, the White House said on Friday, a decision that will tack an extra day onto his already marathon tour of the region.

"We look forward to it".

"We're actually staying an extra day in the Philippines", Trump told reporters before leaving on the five-nation trip. He called it "a big conference, a second conference".

The East Asia Summit, which takes place on November 14 in Manila, immediately follows the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit on November 13 in the Philippine capital.

Trump had initially planned to only attend the opening ceremony of the East Asia Summit.

But we're not here to talk about politics, of course.

Between the US, SKorea, and Japan, the NKorean missile threat looms large and President Trump is expected to reaffirm the US's commitment to standing alliance.

He says of his visit: "I think we're going to have great success".

Now, with President Trump 12 hours ahead of the United States in Asia, and gone from the U.S. time zone, we may expect quieter days on the DC news front.

And very importantly, President Trump's visit to China comes as its President, Xi Jinping, fresh for the CPC Congress with power not seen since Chairman Mao's decades-long rule.
