President Trump to make "major" announcement about North Korea, trade

'It will be a very complete statement as to trade, as to North Korea, as to a lot of other things, ' Trump promised. But, he emphasized, his administration will refuse to allow us to be taken advantage of us in trade pacts.

"The current trade imbalance is not acceptable", Trump said last week during his address at the Asia-Pacific Economic cooperation forum in Vietnam.

"Such scenes of an American president kowtowing in China to a Chinese president sent chills down the spines of Asia experts and United States allies who have relied on America to balance and sometimes counter an increasingly assertive China", Rice wrote.

But this theme was largely lost in the jeremiad on trade. "What regional countries wanted was for him to simply show up - to underscore that America remained at least notionally committed to Asia", said Shahriman Lockman, a senior analyst at the Institute of Strategic & International Studies in Malaysia.

Both China and the United States know that there is only so much time for diplomacy before tougher measures are employed. "The United States supports the peaceful resolution of all territorial disputes", Trump said in his remarks.

In fact, two identical bills introduced on Wednesday in the US Senate and House of Representatives to beef up the scrutiny of foreign investment, especially from China, if passed, would worsen the concern on the Chinese side. He said nothing publicly about China's human rights record.

Both Trump and Xi are mutually committed "to the complete denuclearization of North Korea", Trump said, adding both leaders agreed "to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons its reckless and risky path". "They're very giving, and they don't get in return", Trump said. They were sanctioned at a very high level. They spend hundreds of dollars a day and thousands or millions of dollars a year on Trump products. But we get along very well. "And we'll be pinpointing things".

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier this week that Trump would announce at the end of his trip his decision whether or not to officially re-list North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. But officials acknowledged that China had not budged on their No. 1 request on North Korea: to cut off all shipments of oil to the North.

SCOTT HORSLEY, BYLINE: For the better part of two weeks, President Trump has been in near constant motion - five countries, three global summits, more than half a dozen meetings with individual foreign leaders.

Moreover, Trump soft-pedalled his call for China not to colonize the South China Sea.

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 UN.

During his visit to China, President Trump would have been well inspired to visit the futuristic library, shaped like a giant eye, that recently opened in Tianjin. Should Washington's goal be to unite Asian countries, particularly its democracies, to counterbalance China? Duterte stopped construction last week on a sandbar in disputed waters, as part of a broader effort to draw closer to Beijing.

It is understandable that some long-standing issues between the two countries, such as USA concern for market access and intellectual property and Chinese concern for excessive scrutiny of Chinese investment in the U.S. and restriction of high-tech exports to China, won't be resolved during this visit.

Trump said that the fake narrative that he colluded with Russian Federation in winning the elections, was making it hard to improve relations with Russian Federation.

"It was a red carpet like nobody, I think, has probably ever seen", Donald Trump declared approvingly. During Trump's visit to Hanoi, following his stop-off in Danang, new orders totaling $12 billion were placed for additional products and services, including airplane engines. The question, they said, is whether his mixed messages will open the door further for China's incursions in the region.
