President Trump says he will make a “major” announcement on North Korea and the outcome of his week-long trade negotiations across East Asia when he returns to Washington later this week.

“It will be a very complete statement as to trade, as to North Korea as to a lot of other things,” Trump said at a meeting with Australian Prime Minister Malcom Turnbull and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

The president said he would make the statement from the White House on Wednesday.

“We’ve made some very big steps with respect to trade, far bigger than anything you know, in addition to about $300 billion in sales to various companies, including China,” he said. “We have deficits with almost everybody. Those deficits are going to be cut very quickly and very substantially.” Click here to read more.
