Statement by Ambassador Haley on Successes of the President’s Trip to Asia

November 15, 2017


President Trump’s recent trip to Asia showed that America is ready to lead again in this crucial region of the world. That includes standing strong with our friends and allies, calling out those who threaten us, and looking out for the best interests of the American people and American businesses. The President’s visit helped strengthen the international community’s commitment to addressing the security threats posed by North Korea and its lawless regime. Now more than ever, Kim Jong-un is isolated and feeling the pinch from the strongest set of sanctions ever passed by the UN Security Council. The President made strides in each country he visited to promote a free and open Indo-Pacific region that will benefit the economies and political stability of the region. Finally, President Trump stood up for American prosperity by promoting fair trade and new investments that will lead to new jobs for hard-working Americans.
