U.S. President Donald Trump accompanied by his wife Melania made a solemn visit Friday (November 3) to Pearl Harbor and its memorial to the USS Arizona before he embarks on the longest trip to Asia by an American president in more than a quarter century, looking for help to pressure North Korea to stand down from a nuclear crisis.

Trump’s tour of Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines from Friday to Nov. 14 will take him out of Washington, where he has been beset by several issues.

Trump arrived at Joint Base Hickam in Hawaii on Friday afternoon, stopping for a briefing on U.S. military forces in the Pacific before he visited Pearl Harbor. Japanese forces attacked Pearl Harbor with torpedo planes, bombers and fighter planes on the morning of Dec. 7, 1941, pounding the U.S. fleet moored there in the hope of destroying U.S. power in the Pacific.

Trump then will visit Japan and South Korea in search of a united front against North Korea before going to Beijing, where he will push Chinese President Xi Jinping to get tougher with Pyongyang.
