Continuing his tour of Asia, U.S. President Donald Trump crowed over pending negotiations with South Korea and the purchase of a number of nuclear-powered submarines.
Trump’s presidential tour of Asia has transformed into a bidding platform for U.S.-made military weapons, including submarines, planes and missiles to name a few.
While visiting South Korean President Moon Jae-in in Seoul, Trump offered his congratulations on the large amount of equipment purchased from the United States, which he said would lower the trade deficit, something he added was "very important" to the people.
“We have trade deficits with numerous countries and we don't want trade deficits, so we appreciate that very much,” Trump said.
On Monday, Trump spoke to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, painting a picture of U.S. made weaponry shooting North Korean ballistic missiles “out of the sky."
