ASEAN to Meet Trump’s Man

U.S. Vice President Mike Pence says President Donald Trump will be attending a summit with the leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, or Asean, in the Philippines in November.

Last December, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte made a phone call to congratulate Trump on his victory in the USA 2016 presidential elections.

Paynor is also the director-general for operations of the ASEAN 2017 National Organizing Council. "At least verbally he said he was coming", said Paynor during a press conference in Manila.

Duterte said Trump invited him to the White House.

For his part, Duterte, however, said he was not sure whether Trump would visit the Philippines. "But he seems to be very busy", he said, adding, "If he's coming, it would be good for the country, for all of us".

The 30 ASEAN Summit is on April 26 to 29 while the 31 ASEAN Summit is on November 10 to 14 in Clark, Pampanga.

Trump's decision to attend the meetings could come as a surprise to some, given his fiery "America first" rhetoric and his decision to abandon a Pacific trade pact which was the economic plank of the pivot. China claims most of the South China Sea, but has overlapping claims with a number of Southeast Asian countries.

"Multilateral meetings of this sort, we usually expect 100 percent attendance".

Former president Barack Obama, who had championed a "pivot to Asia", was a frequent visitor to the Asia-Pacific as he sought to refocus United States foreign policy on the region to counter growing Chinese influence.
