President Donald Trump departed on Friday for a 10-day trip to Asia, where he will visit China, Japan, Philippines, South Korea, and Vietnam.
“I think we’re going to have a very successful trip,” Trump said to reporters before leaving the White House. “There is a lot of good will.”
Trump is currently flying aboard Air Force One to Hawaii, where he plans to visit the U.S. Pacific Command as well as Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial.
The White House confirmed that Trump had decided to stay an extra day in the Philippines to attend the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit.
This is the longest trip to Asia by a U.S. president since George H.W. Bush went on a 12-day tour of Asia in 1991.[contentcards url=”http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2017/11/03/donald-trump-leaves-for-historic-10-day-trip-to-asia/” target=”_blank”]
