Trump's Asian Visit

Inside Trump's 12 day tour in North Korea's nervous neighborhood

TOKYO -- U.S. President Donald Trump is on a 12-day tour of Asia -- his first official visit to the region and the longest by a sitting president so far this millennium. His discussions with Asian leaders are sure to focus on North Korea and trade, but the "Russia-gate" probe will be looming in the background.   

After stopping in Hawaii, Trump visited Japan from Nov. 5-7, meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as well as families of Japanese citizens who were abducted by North Korea in the 1970s and 80s. Abe hosted the president in a round of golf, returning the favor for a round Trump hosted at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
