 President Trump on Friday vowed to protect American interests against foreign exploitation, speaking a starkly unilateralist approach to a world leaders who once pinned their economic hopes on a regional trade led by the United States.

“We are not going to let the United States be taken advantage of anymore,” President Trump told business leaders at the Asia-Pacific Economic Submit forum in Danang, Vietnam. “I am always going to put America first, the same way that I expect all of you in this room to put your countries first.”

Speaking  immediately after President Trump, China President Xi Jinping  delivered a sharply contrasting message, championing more Partnership engagement with the world. Mr. Xi used his own speech to make a spirited defense of globalization, saying relations among countries should be “more open, more inclusive, more balanced, more equitable and more beneficial to all.”
