ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) President Donald Trump said he was 'very proud' of his 12-day trip to Asia while he was returning to Washington on Tuesday. "Very proud of it from a standpoint of security and safety, military very proud and trade, you will see numbers that you won't believe over the years..." Trump said on Air Force One. "I think we made a lot of progress just in terms of relationship." During a tour that took him to Japan, South Korea, China and Vietnam and the Philippines capital, Trump called for joint efforts to tighten the screws on North Korea and its development of nuclear weapons in defiance of U.N. sanctions. But at an Asia-Pacific summit in Vietnam, he declared that redressing the uneven balance of trade between Asia and the United States was at the center of his "America First" policy, which he says will protect U.S. workers.
