Trump Arrives in South Korea for Second Leg of Asia Tour

SEOUL – US President Donald Trump landed on Tuesday in South Korea, the second leg of his tour of Asia, for a two-day visit focusing on the threat posed by North Korea and bilateral trade relations.

The Air Force One landed around 12:18 pm at the Osan air base, 64 kilometers (39.7 miles) south of Seoul, where Trump and first lady Melania were welcomed by South Korea’s Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha.

Trump, along with US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the commander of the US forces in South Korea, Vincent Brooks, left in a helicopter for Camp Humphreys, where he is scheduled to visit the facilities and have lunch with US troops.

The US president is then scheduled to head to Seoul to meet with his counterpart Moon Jae-in at the Blue House (the president’s residence), to discuss Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons program.

Trump’s visit, the first state visit by a sitting US president to South Korea in 25 years, has compelled the South Korean authorities to deploy extensive security measures to control protests planned for Tuesday.

Security around the US embassy has been stepped up and demonstrators will be contained inside a fenced area outside the diplomatic mission in Seoul, where the Trump convoy is scheduled to pass on its way to the Blue House.
