Trump Says Asia Trip Showed Strong US Standing

Donald Trump Rodrigo Duterte

US President Donald Trump said in a speech delivered at the White House on Wednesday that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was "very happy" with his efforts to strengthen the alliance.

Trump called the trip "historic" and said the United States was treated with "incredible warmth, hospitality and most importantly respect".

The American leader said his two-week-long trip has been "tremendously successful" and trumpeted trade agreements quoting figures wildly ranging from $300bn to a trillion.

The president tweeted Wednesday that he was "forced" to watch CNN during the trip and "again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is". "They should realize that these relationships are a good thing, not a bad thing".

President Trump is now set to make a major announcement as his first order of business back in Washington.

Trump Says Asia Trip Showed Strong US Standing

As he jetted across the region, to five nations, six cities and three summits over 12 days, Trump pushed regional leaders to reshape trade deals to America's liking, but he won no firm commitments from his hosts.

He said his trip to Asia showed that America's "standing in the world has never been stronger". The White House would not discuss the details in advance.

The speech, which came as Trump fumed at press coverage of his trip, framed his accomplishments in terms of correcting the "mistakes" of his predecessors and following through on his promises to voters.

As he noted highlights of the trip from each country, he additionally ran through a laundry list of goals, from calling on the worldwide community to unite against North Korea, to fair and reciprocal trade.

The President did appear to try to clean up remarks in Beijing when he said he did not "blame" China for its unfair trade practices and gave the country "credit" for taking advantage of the US.
