President Donald Trump said Friday that he intends to put the United States on a path of uncompromising nationalism on trade, telling a 21-nation gathering of CEOs in Vietnam that he is ‘not going to let the United States be taken advantage of anymore.’
‘I am always going to put America first,’ Trump said, ‘the same way that I expect all of you in this room to put your countries first.’
One of those nations represented at the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit is China, where Trump spent Thursday making friendly overtures to President Xi Jinping in a bid for a rebalancing of a $347 billion trade deficit.
He flew directly from Beijing to the sweltering Vietnamese coastal city of Da Nang, changing his tune as Air Force One crossed time zones.
