President Donald Trump warned nations against challenging the U.S. as he rallied American troops in Japan on the first stop of his 11-day tour of Asia.

Speaking to U.S. and Japanese military personnel on Sunday at Yokota Air Base in western Tokyo, Trump said he’d push for freedom in the region and fair trade in meetings with other leaders. He also exuded confidence in the U.S. military as tensions rise with North Korea.
