Trump Opens Door to Peaceful Solution to North Korea Conflict

David Pressman, a former USA ambassador to the United Nations under President Obama, said Trump arrived in Asia without a North Korea strategy and left without one. So far, it has done neither.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called Trump's Asia visit "embarrassing", asserting that the president is not ready for "primetime".

VETERANS: Vet says treatment court saved him. How do you feel about Trump visiting the region? The takeaway was stark: No one knew what to expect, but many were preparing for the worst.

Trump returns to Washington D.C. today from the Philippines, which was the final stop on his 11-day odyssey to Asia.

The president could have changed this impression. "I thank President Xi for his recent efforts to restrict trade with North Korea and to cut off all banking ties", Trump said. Despite some grumbling from Democrats like Nancy Pelosi who said the Chinese were likely laughing at Trump for treading lightly in China about that country's trade imbalance with the US after using strong rhetoric domestically, reviews have been generally positive. "The United States has to be treated fairly and in a reciprocal fashion".

But as Trump arrived in Beijing for the third leg of the trip, the narrative started to fall apart.

"Mr. Trump showered President Xi Jinping of China with embarrassingly fawning accolades", Rice wrote.

Trump's "America First" message might go down well with his base back home, but it does little to reassure allies here that the U.S. is not turning its back on regional leadership and engagement, at a time when China is making its presence and its overseas investment felt.

Time seems a different concept in the two countries.

Rapprochement with the USA has been careful, and not without challenges. For countries that feel threatened by Beijing, the G-2 concept is worrying.

Trump's Asian tour, unlike Nixon's visit to China, is not likely to make the history books.

That language may have worked at home, but Trumps audience in Danang wasnt buying it.

The US President had two principal issues to flog with China - reducing America's massive trade deficit and countering the North Korean nuclear threat.

Trump had extended his itinerary by one day in order to attend the summit plenary session. Some countries that feel threatened by China are trying to bind themselves closer together to push for their interests. Xi's speech in the same forum reflected this reality.

More unpredictability could follow.

In South Korea's National Assembly, Trump offered a nuclear ultimatum of sorts to North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, who has been taunting his neighbors and the U.S.by testing missiles in waters off Japan and not far from USA overseas territories. And weapons sales, in Trump's view, are good for his approval ratings. And in Japan, conservatives such as the recently reelected Abe are again pushing to reform the countrys pacifist constitution and exert more military power to hedge against an uncertain future.

During the Vietnam War, U.S. and South Vietnamese forces relied heavily on Danang as an important air base. “I dont think so.”. It nonetheless marks another step towards the U.S.'s involuntary and premature handover of power to China.

"The Indo-Pacific framing is clearly the handiwork of his more experienced and internationally-minded senior national security team, while the "America First" theme of demanding zero-sum concessions from all our trading partners is not", said Michael J. Green, senior vice president for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

"It's been a great 12 days", Donald Trump declared at the end of his five-nation tour.
