Joint News Conference, President Trump and Singapore Prime Minister Loong


President Donald Trump and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsein Loong will meet at the White House Monday.

Analysts say Lee’s visit to the United States is part of a geopolitical balancing act — between a need to encourage Trump to stay engaged in Asia after U.S. withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership this year, and avoiding angering China.

Lee recently visited Beijing after he sided with the United States in condemning China’s aggressive policies in the South China Sea.
