Trump Extending Asia Trip to Attend Summit in Philippines

President Donald Trump is extending his trip to Asia by another day to attend the East Asian Summit.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirms the president will be spending an extra day in the Philippines to accommodate the annual event on Nov. 14.

Trump had been criticized by many experts in the region for skipping the summit, saying it put into question U.S. commitment to and focus on Southeast Asia.

Trump had originally been scheduled to leave Manila right as the summit got under way.

Trump announced the news to reporters as he departed the White House en route to his first flight to Hawaii.
