Donald Trump calls Asia trip 'fruitful' with trade progress, nuclear reassurance

I GOT IT! Trump grimaced as he swapped hands with Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc while Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte waited for his other arm to connect

Wrapping up his extensive tour of Asia, Trump hailed "tremendous amounts of work" on trade and said nations around the globe have been put on notice that the USA will demand improved trading conditions.

Activists later held their protests about a kilometre away from the venue and burned a 13-foot (4-metre) effigy of U.S. President Donald Trump.

The U.S. and Philippine governments say President Donald Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte agreed to "continue mainstreaming the human rights agenda" in their respective countries during their meeting Monday in Manila.

Trump told reporters before departing an worldwide summit: "We've had a tremendously successful trip".

She said: "The conversation focused on ISIS, illegal drugs and trade. Human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines' fight against illegal drugs", Sanders said. He said there had been a "rather lengthy discussion of the Philippine war on drugs".

The ASEAN-UN meet on Monday was the last item on the President's schedule on Monday.

Facebook Stories Replacing Messenger Day with Coordinated Cross-Posting
Facebook is also reportedly working on enabling cross-posting Instagram Stories to Facebook but the reverse is not yet planned. For months, the features were completely separated from each other which was an interesting move from Facebook, to begin with.

In Manila for the Asean conference, Trump looked to strengthen ties with Pacific Rim allies, aiming to strike one-on-one trade deals rather than multinational trade agreements, and increase pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear programme.

The president and senior White House staff say that the red-carpet treatment was itself a win, and underscored new deference and respect for the U.S.in relationships they say were worn thin by former President Barack Obama's efforts within the region.

A Vietnamese delegation led by Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc arrived in Manila on Sunday to participate.

Donald Trump has hailed his "great relationship" with the controversial Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte at the end of a two-day regional summit in Manila. At the opening ceremony in Manila, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, said that the two days of meetings presented an excellent opportunity to engage in meaningful discussion on matters of regional and global importance. The White House has suggested the president may designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.

More than 3,900 people have been killed in a war on drugs that Mr Duterte declared when he took office previous year.
