East Asia Summit sends message to North Korea -- without Trump

President Donald Trump shares a toast during a state dinner hosted by South Korea's President Moon Jae-in at the Blue House in Seoul South Korea

"This year, we have tragically seen chemical weapons used by the Syrian regime and by North Korea at the Kuala Lumpur airport".

U.S. President Donald Trump has said he will be making a "major" statement on North Korea and trade when he returns to the White House on Wednesday.

President Donald Trump is winding down his lengthy Asia trip with an worldwide summit and a series of meetings with Pacific Rim allies, including his host in the Philippines who is overseeing a bloody drug war. "The dark clouds are there".

"We've have a great relationship", Trump said.

John Brennan said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump is trying to "delegitimize" the US intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Of course, not one to pass up an opportunity to pat himself on the back, Trump declared his tour of Asia "has been a very fruitful trip for us, and also in all fairness, for a lot of other nations".

He is also optimistic that the sanctions against North Korea are working.

"I was able to share with the leaders an unprecedented sense of crisis at the [summit]", Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told reporters at a press conference late on Tuesday.

Trump kicked off his trip in Hawaii on November 3, before traveling to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Trump will also meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India, which plays a key role in the US vision of an Indo-Pacific region that attempts to de-emphasize China's influence.

Endo International plc (ENDP), Newell Brands Inc. (NWL)
The company provided EPS guidance of $3.35-3.65 for the period, compared to the Thomson Reuters consensus EPS estimate of $3.52. Analysts expect Endo International PLC to post earnings of $0.81 per share and revenue of $862.47 million for the quarter.

But that hope was dented by Trump, who failed to show up despite earlier prolonging his stay in Manila in order to attend.

Trump was originally scheduled to depart Manila on Monday but he added a day to the visit so he could more fully participate in one of the summits.

He said "a lot of things are happening on trade" and that he will announce what happened in meetings in South Korea, China and other places.

"Just arrived at #ASEAN50 in the Philippines for my final stop with World Leaders".

Do you live in Asia?

Trump tells the leaders of member nations gathered in Manila that he's "here to advance peace, to promote security and to work with you to achieve a truly free and open Indo-Pacific".

However, Annelise Riles, a professor of far east legal studies and anthropology at Cornell University, said Trump did not fulfil his agenda in Asia.

President Donald Trump is winding down his lengthy Asia trip with trio of meetings with Pacific Rim allies, including his host in the Philippines who is overseeing a bloody drug war.

Is the U.S.an indispensable economic partner, or should Asia become more self-sufficient?
