The US President kicks off a long tour to Asia, with a clear message: "Don't underestimate America". Trade deals are on the agenda. But one subject overtakes all - tensions with North Korea. He began in Japan. A meeting with a man he appears to see as his new "best-buddy" Prime Minister Shinzo Abe over a lunch of burgers and a round of golf.

He will go next to South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

His predecessor Barack Obama also spent a lot of time in the region, as part of his so-called 'pivot' to Asia.

Is Trump planning to continue on that path?
