"a very fruitful trip"

Yes, a 76th word has been added to Trump's vocabulary.  "Fruitful" does not sound like Trump.  Did it come from his resident wordsmith Stephen Miller?  Sounds more like him.

Other than that, Trump's words were the usual.  He described the Asia trip as "red carpet like nobody, I think, has probably ever received", reflecting his unique perspective on history.  Commenting on his trip to the tyrant Duterte's Philippines where he repaired what had been a "horrible relationship", he further noted "We have a very good relationship, I would actually say probably better than ever."  That speaks for itself, as does Trump, in his visit to Vietnam, volunteering his deal-making skills to mediate disputes over the South China sea while badgering that small country about trade imbalances.  He did nothing of the sort in meetings with the somewhat larger China.

On and on it goes...
