Since becoming president, Trump has pulled the United States out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a major trade agreement which includes 12 APEC members, arguing it would damage America's economic interests.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang where he was scheduled to attend the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit and a series of bilateral meetings with global leaders, including Chinese President Xi Jinping. "I am always going to put America first", he said.

Speaking in Beijing on November 9, Trump said he does not blame China for the "unfair" trade relationship between the countries, instead blaming previous USA administrations.

US Reps. Randy Hultgren and James McGovern recently wrote a letter to Trump asking to "impress upon President Duterte the United States' profound concern" over the alleged extrajudicial killings related to his drug war.

In Beijing, Trump criticized the "very one-sided and unfair" relationship between the USA and China.

He said market access is the big thing the New Zealand beef industry wanted from the trade deal, with a level playing field in Japan essential. "I do not blame China, or any other country, of which there are many, for taking advantage of the United States on trade".

"I wish previous administrations in my country saw what was happening and did something about it", Trump said.

Trump also said Friday the whole world was being lifted by America's economic renewal, and that a "new optimism" has swept across the USA since his election.

"The whole world is lifted by America's renewal", he said.
