While in Hanoi, Vietnam, President Trump sent out two Twitter messages Saturday evening, after attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders’ Meeting in Danang, Vietnam

The president assured that progress is being made with China, as the president of China has promised to stand strong against North Korea.

“President Xi of China has stated that he is upping the sanctions against #NoKo. Said he wants them to denuclearize. Progress is being made,” Trump tweeted.

President Trump then tweeted, “Will be doing a joint press conference in Hanoi, Vietnam then heading for final destination of trip, the Philippines.”

Earlier Saturday, President Trump told reporters while aboard Air Force One that during his brief visits with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Putin had emphatically denied that his country had any part in meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Trump told reporters on the flight from Danang to Hanoi that he and Putin largely discussed Syria in their “two or three very short conversations.”
