In a clear sign of standing for a different America (remember President Obama who offered his apologies for bombing Hiroshima when he visited Japan), President Trump and First Lady Melania made a first stop on their Asia tour, by landing in Hawaii and paying their respects to the perished Americans during the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941.

The first couple stood in awe before the memorial of the fallen of the USS Arizona, where they observed a moment of silence and then tossed flower petals in memory of the soldiers that lost their lives on that fateful day in December 1941. A total of more than 2,300 sailors, soldiers and Marines died as a result of the attack, as did 68 civilians.

Before arriving, Trump had said: "We are going to visit very shortly, Pearl Harbor, which I've read about, spoken about, heard about, studied, but I haven't seen. And that is going to be very exciting for me."

<blockquote class="twitter-video" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Thank you for such a beautiful welcome Hawaii. My great honor to visit <a href="https://twitter.com/PacificCommand?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@PacificCommand</a> upon arrival.

President Trump is currently being briefed by the Pacific Command, where he is being briefed about the latest fleet movements in the Pacific and the military possibilities against North Korea.

Afterwards he heads to Japan where he will meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. From there it goes to South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. The North Korean Crisis is a likely topic of discussion during all those stops. President Trump and First Lady Melania will be joined by many US businessmen hoping to conclude deals in Asia thanks to the Presidential introduction.
