Trump arrives in Hawaii ahead of Asia trip

Air Force One arrived at Hickam Air Force Base in Hawaii yesterday, Nov 3, at 12:56 pm local (6:56 pm EST) with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, among other officials, on board.

Trump's visit will be the longest tour of Asia by a US President in 25 years.

In Hawaii, the President and First Lady made a solemn visit to the USS Arizona Memorial where they tossed flower petals into the water above the battleship's sunken hull, the USA media reported. Trump's agenda for his stop in Hawaii includes a meeting with governors from five USA states and territories that are among those most vulnerable to attack from the rogue nation. He signed autographs and gave high-fives to kids who were among a group of civilians and service members that gathered for the arrival.

But Trump wasn't the only attraction to arrive at the base. In the evening, POTUS and his party made a visit to the USS Arizona Memorial, where they spent about 20 minutes at the shrine to the 1,177 crewmen who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. A few in the crowd shouted for White House chief of staff John Kelly. A key discussion topic likely will be the growing nuclear threat from North Korea, a crisis that will shadow Trump's entire trip. Kim has threatened to bomb Guam, and Trump has suggested that the US may attack North Korea.

He was also scheduled to meet with the Governors of Alaska, Hawaii and Pacific US territories, which are all relatively close targets if North Korea opts for a missile strike against the US.

"We are going to visit very shortly, Pearl Harbor, which I've read about, spoken about, heard about, studied, but I haven't seen".

Garnished affectionately with leis as soon as they disembarked the aircraft, the POTUS and FLOTUS were welcomed by Hawaii Gov. David Ige and his wife, Dawn Ige, US Navy Adm. Harry Harris, commander of the US Pacific Command, his wife, Bruni Bradley, and Mikayla Webb, the daughter of Adm. Harris's aid. Trump did not offer any public remarks during his visit to the memorial. Both she and the president were given them after they arrived on the island.

And The Associated Press discovered that a number of families of soldiers killed since Trump took office had not received a call from the president, despite his claim that he had called almost all of them.
