Tokyo, November 6 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump kicked off a 13-day, five-nation trip to Asia with a visit to Japan over the weekend, pressing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe for a better trade agreement and urging Japan to purchase more U.S. weapons.
At a joint news conference with Abe on Monday, Trump repeated a threat against North Korea over its nuclear program, saying the “era of strategic patience is over.”
Trump is scheduled to visit South Korea on Tuesday; ahead of his visit, antiwar activists gathered outside the U.S. Embassy to protest Trump’s threats to “totally destroy North Korea.”
One organizer of the protesters in Seoul told reporters: “We urge U.S. President Trump to solve issues on the Korean Peninsula by halting the South Korean-U.S. joint military drills and making North Korea stop development of the nuclear and missile program through dialogue and negotiation, not sanctions or pressure.”
