President Donald Trump will make a "major statement" on North Korea and trade on Wednesday as he returns to Washington from his marathon tour of Asia.
Trump made the typically bombastic pledge to journalists ahead of a meeting with his Australian and Japanese counterparts in Manila.
"So we'll be making a major statement on Wednesday. And this has been a very fruitful trip; for us and also in all fairness for a lot of other nations," he said.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said earlier this week that Trump would announce at the end of his trip his decision whether or not to officially re-list North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism.
It remains to be seen whether the statement will also include details related to the revision of Washington's bilateral free trade deal with South Korea.
