President Trump is planning to depart for a 12-day trip to Asia in early November, amid rising tensions between the U.S. and North Korea. Trump is slated to visit China, Vietnam, Japan, the Philippines and South Korea. White House officials are divided over whether Trump should visit the Demilitarized Zone between North and South Korea during the trip, with concerns that a visit could further exacerbate the threat of nuclear war. In the Philippines, he’s slated to meet with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who is presiding over a bloody so-called war on drugs that has left thousands of people dead.
