The White House has said Trump will set out a U.S. vision for a “free and open Indo-Pacific region” in a speech in the beach resort of Danang.

Trump arrived from China, where he praised Chinese leader Xi Jinping as “highly respected” and Chinese media had declared the visit had set a “new blueprint” for handling U.S.-China relations and differences.
