On the news last night (CNN) his trip was being billed as a "10 day trip to Asia..."
That's sorta what happened on a previous trip. Schedules like this are tough for even someone in their 40's or 50's. When people realize they can't keep him coherent, they start cutting his schedule and looking for golf courses.

I hear he’s going to the Korean DMZ. My imagination is running wild.
Nope.

“The president is not going to visit the DMZ. There is not enough time in the schedule,” the official told reporters in a background briefing.

Instead, Trump will be the first American president to visit Camp Humphreys, a military installation south of the South Korean capital of Seoul.
This is how to tactfully say "fuck no" when the DOTUS says he wants to take a stroll through one of the most dangerous pieces of real estate on the planet.

The actual article makes it clear that he only did it after Abe did. He does enough stupid shit that there should be no reason to make any up.

By some bit of serendipity, I will be flying out of Asia just as the OSG is arriving, and leaving the US right before he returns :)

Update (I don't know where else to post this.)

Woman fired from her job after flipping off Trump's motorcade
A woman was fired from her job after a photo of her flipping off President Trump's motorcade went viral.

The Huffington Post reported that the woman, Juli Briskman, was fired from her job at government contractor Akima LLC.

The photo was taken by a White House photographer as the president was leaving his golf course in Sterling, Va.

She told the Huffington Post that after the photo surfaced, her bosses told her she had violated the company's social media policy because she had used the photo as her profile picture.

“They said, ‘We’re separating from you,'" Briskman said.

“Basically, you cannot have ‘lewd’ or ‘obscene’ things on your social media. So they were calling flipping him off ‘obscene.’”

Briskman worked in marketing and communications at Akima. <SNIP>

45, the great deal maker, didn't get much from his trip to Japan.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... be-digs-in
For Trump, more known for shoving a fellow leader aside than embracing one, the relationship with Abe is a way to show he can work with his peers around the globe. The two men also agree on a hard-line approach to North Korea.

But throughout Trump’s two-day visit, Abe publicly ducked any talk of major trade concessions even though Trump kept bringing it up. The only major investment cited -- a $1 billion project in Tennessee from auto parts maker Denso Corp. -- was old news, contrasting with Trump’s plan to announce billions of dollars in deals on his stop in China later this week.

Trump all but pleaded with Japanese carmakers to build more factories in the U.S., or let a few more American cars into Japan. Invest in the U.S., Trump said, and he promised to make sure they speed right through the approval process.

World leaders have figured him out.

Dangle a few shiny baubles / dog and pony shows in front of him and avoid any substantive discussions.
