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.

It wasn't known how serious the soldier's injury was.

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

The change underscored the growing three-way relationship concerning regional security, especially regarding how to respond to North Korea's nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs, as well as countering China's increasingly assertive maritime territorial claims.

In a speech before South Korea's national assembly last week, Mr. Trump warned North Korea not to "underestimate" the U.S. Annelise Riles, professor of far east legal studies and anthropology at Cornell University and the founder and director of policy innovation platform Meridian 180, says the trip marks an historic moment in the ongoing decline of USA power in Asia.

President Donald Trump has arrived in the Philippines to attend a pair of worldwide summits and close his five-country tour of Asia. "Human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines' fight against illegal drugs".

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.

Trump's first official visit to the region was billed as a push to step up global pressure on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program and reduce U.S. trade deficits with South Korea, Japan and China.

It was a strikingly hostile message to an audience that included leaders who had tied their fortunes to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a sweeping 12-nation accord that was to be led by the United States, from which Trump withdrew after taking office.

Questions about Russian meddling in the 2016 election have followed President Donald Trump to Asia.
