President Trump said Tuesday that he secured trade deals that will be worth over $1 trillion to the U.S. on his 12-day trip through Asia.
“We’ve had a tremendously successful trip,” Mr. Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One after leaving a summit in The Philippines. “We have at least $300 billion worth of deals.”
The president predicted the value of those agreements with U.S. companies such as Boeing will quadruple.
“It’s minimum $300 billion, and that’s going to be very quickly over a trillion dollars,” Mr. Trump said. “And I would say that’s the least significant thing that we accomplished.”
During the tour that also took him to Japan, South Korea, China and Vietnam, Mr. Trump said his biggest accomplishment on trade was “letting people know that from now on, things are going to be reciprocal.”
