Trump meets Japan, Australia leaders, discusses trade, North Korea threat

U.S. President Trump Visits China

Reporters tried to query whether Trump had raised the issue of human rights with Duterte. "We better pray", he said, describing the situation in the Korean Peninsula as a "crisis looming ahead". He's also applauding the Philippines' on their staging of the conference.

As if to underscore the contrast, President Xi Jinping of China, who took the stage immediately after Trump, used his own speech to make a spirited defense of globalization, saying it should be "more open, more inclusive, more balanced, more equitable and more beneficial to all".

Trump has previously praised Duterte's handling of his nation's drug problems.

"You're the only one", Trump responded. "This is the bilateral meeting".

"We've made some very big steps with respect to trade, far bigger than anything you know, in addition to about $300 billion in sales to various companies, including China", he added at the meeting with Turnbull and Abe.

"And it will be a very complete statement as to trade, as to North Korea, as to a lot of other things".

Protesters burned an effigy of Trump on Monday.

Who will be the strongest political force in East Asia in 2030? That cross-body handshake, during which each leader shakes the opposite hands of those next to him or her, briefly baffled Trump, who then laughed as he figured out where to place his arms. Trump also is scheduled to meet with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

But just a day earlier, he had lashed out at the former heads of the USA intelligence agencies, dismissing them as "political hacks" and claiming there were plenty of reasons to be suspicious of their findings that Russian Federation meddled to help Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The East Asia Summit brought together the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, along with Japan, China, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, India, the US and Russian Federation. But Trump remains dogged by things he has said, and not said, about Russian Federation.

In brief remarks prior to media being ushered out of the meeting, Turnbull said North Korea's "recklessness" needed to be stopped, while Abe said the most immediate challenge was to ensure regional peace and stability. "As now led by fine people, I believe very much in our intelligence agencies". He says it demonstrates that Trump "can be played by foreign leaders".

Leaders from 18 countries met in the Philippine capital for the East Asia Summit on Tuesday, with concerns about continued provocations by North Korea a key area of discussion.
