Susan Rice: Trump Got 'Played Like A Fiddle' by China

Susan Rice: Trump Got 'Played Like A Fiddle' by China

The president will head back to Washington from his 12-day trip overseas on Tuesday.

Nor did it announce major moves to open its markets during Trump's visit, in part because the president did not ask for any.

The president addresses the media, world leaders, during Asia trip. And then tomorrow we have the conference.

"It's been an incredible 12 days".

While the American and Chinese leaders seem to like each other, and each has worked hard to cultivate the other, in the last analysis they serve different interests. The last president who tried, George H.W. Bush, was sick and exhausted by the end of the trip and threw up on the Japanese prime minister.

Schumer alleged that after eight years of Republicans questioning President Barack Obama's toughness with foreign leaders it seems that Trump, not Obama, is the one who's afraid to take on America's adversaries.

"My press - I feel so sorry for them".

"I also have come here to this peninsula to deliver a message directly to the leader of the North Korean dictatorship: The weapons you are acquiring are not making you safer". You were able to hang in there.

HORSLEY: Trump insists it's been a fruitful trip, and there's certainly been plenty of pageantry.

But at least for Trump he was now headed for the one country in the world where, according to recent surveys, he enjoys more positive than negative views.

TRUMP: It was a red carpet like nobody I think has probably ever received, and that really is a sign of respect perhaps for me a little bit but really for our country. "And it will be a very complete statement as to trade, as to North Korea, as to a lot of other things".

PRIME MINISTER MALCOLM TURNBULL: We've got the same values and the same focus on ensuring that the North Korean regime comes to its senses and stops its reckless provocation.

"Mr. Trump showered President Xi Jinping of China with embarrassingly fawning accolades", Rice wrote.

The great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation - described by Xi as the Chinese Dream - and the "Make America Great Again" policy pushed by Trump will only become more attainable if the two countries work closely to expand cooperation instead of indulging in a wasteful zero-sum game. Presiding over tens of billions of dollars' worth of new commercial contracts for things like soybeans, aircraft engines and natural gas. For Trump it appears that the only free trade he wants is ability to plant Trump Towers everywhere from Riyadh to Bali to Manila via Moscow. He told reporters to stay tuned. The United States habitually racks up $500.0-billion annual trade deficits with China.

"The Indo-Pacific framing is clearly the handiwork of his more experienced and internationally-minded senior national security team, while the "America First" theme of demanding zero-sum concessions from all our trading partners is not", said Michael J. Green, senior vice president for Asia at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

Both Trump and Xi are mutually committed "to the complete denuclearization of North Korea", Trump said, adding both leaders agreed "to increase economic pressure until North Korea abandons its reckless and unsafe path".

However, in his speech at the same forum, President Trump targeted China once more without naming it. "They're very giving, and they don't get in return", Trump said. And that took place very recently.

We will never know what might have happened had heavy fog not forced President Trump's helicopter back during his attempt to visit the DMZ (Demilitarised Zone), but his rhetoric in the region has been substantially toned down from his previous threats of "fire and fury".
