In Asia, Trump again find success overseas easier than at home

Hong Kong( CNN) US President Donald Trump flies home Tuesday after an Asia trip that went off without major incident and generally satisfied critics’ low expectations.

If the primary purpose of Trump’s visits to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines was to shore up relations with those countries and their leaders, the trip can be judged a success, even though actual policy wins were in scant furnish.

The President’s time in Asia reinforced an image of a leader more comfortable abroad — where he is feted and feasted — than at home, where he must tackle record-low approval ratings, waning electoral success and an ongoing Russia probe that threatens many of his closest friends.
