U.S. President Donald Trump said he discussed trade issues with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc during a White House visit on Wednesday and that the two countries had signed trade deals.
“They just made a very large order in the United States and we appreciate that for many billions of dollars, which means jobs for the United States and great, great equipment for Vietnam,” Trump told reporters at the White House.
Details of the deals were not immediately provided.

A hateful defense: Republicans can’t exonerate Trump — and so they relying on primal loathing
Republicans have nothing: That is the only reasonable conclusion one can draw after Monday’s impeachment hearing before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s clear that Donald Trump is guilty of running an extortion scheme against Ukraine in order to gin up false accusations against his potential 2020 rival, former Vice President Joe Biden. The evidence, which has been laid out in a series of hearings and in a 300-page document released last week, is voluminous and crystal-clear.
‘Why does he need to cheat?’ Intelligence Committee lawyer reveals why he’s concerned nothing will stop Trump
During the impeachment hearing on Monday, Rep. Debbie Mucarsel-Powell (D-FL) discussed President Donald Trump's solicitation of foreign election interference with Intelligence Committee lawyer Daniel Goldman — who offered a disturbing reason why he thinks Trump will just keep doing it.
"The president's behavior is incredibly disturbing," said Mucarsel-Powell. "Russia, Ukraine, China, he's inviting three countries to help him in his reelection campaign. I don't see any reason he wouldn't ask any other government, for example, Venezuela, correct?"
"At this point, he has shown not only a willingness to do it multiple times, but more importantly for all the members' consideration, he's also shown a lack of contrition, a lack of acknowledgement what he is doing is wrong and that it is wrong," said Goldman. "If you don't recognize that it is wrong, there is no reason why you won't do it again if you've already done it."
Internet laughs out loud after Trump press secretary Stephanie Grisham says ‘let’s be honest’
The credibility gap that has plagued official spokespeople for Donald Trump resulted in hilarious responses after she began her latest defense of the president with, "Let's be honest."
It started when Washington Post reporter David Nakamura noted an unfortunate young man who was stuck sitting next to Trump as the commander-in-chief issued a lie-filled rant about the "overthrow of government" in America.
This young man was invited to a White House roundtable on school choice but he had to sit there as Trump denounced the FBI's Russia investigation as an attempted "overthrow of government"--even though IG called probe legitimate and not political. pic.twitter.com/WdaYLudGnx
