The US president kicked off a long tour of Asia, with a clear message: “Do not underestimate America”.
Trump will discuss trade deals with various leaders, but tensions with North Korea will likely overtake the agenda during his 12-day trip.
Trump began in Japan with a meeting with a man he appears to see as his new “best-buddy” Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over a lunch of burgers and a round of golf.
He will go next to South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
His predecessor Barack Obama also spent a lot of time in the region, as part of his so-called “pivot” to Asia.
Is Trump planning to continue on that path?
