DANANG, Vietnam -- U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday delivered a strongly worded message on trade to Indo-Pacific countries, demanding trade relationships be fair and reciprocal. Trump said the U.S. will no longer tolerate chronic trade abuses under the multilateral trading system and would seek to make bilateral deals with every country in the region.

Trump was speaking at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation CEO Summit in Danang, Vietnam, on the eve of Saturday's APEC summit.
