President Donald Trump returns to the U.S. today after a 12-day tour of 5 Asian nations. Trump's trip saw U.S. and Chinese companies sign more that a dozen deals worth $9 billion on the day he arrived in China. It also included another round of insults in Trump's ongoing war of words with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. And Trump said he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin's claims that Russia did not meddle in last year's election. The U.S. intelligence committee has said its investigation shows Russia did interfere.
The last stop of his whirlwind trek saw him hold a formal meeting with the controversial president of the Philippines, where the White House said the issue of human rights only came up briefly.
