1. President Trump touts a series of accomplishments, especially on trade, as his Asia trip winds down … “We’ve made a lot of big progress on trade,” Trump said. “We have deficits with almost everybody. Those deficits are going to be cut very quickly and very substantially.” The president also alluded to progress made on North Korea, saying he would make a “major statement” in Washington on Wednesday. Trump, on Monday, met with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte. If reporters were waiting for Trump to denounce Duterte for human rights abuses or for calling former President Barack Obama a “son of a whore,” they were disappointed. WATCH VIDEO.
