Trump has said that China should do more to rein in its wayward neighbor.

He said that Xi pledged to implement United Nations sanctions that aim to deprive North Korea of revenues for its weapons programs "and to use his great economic influence over the regime to achieve our common goal of a denuclearized Korean Peninsula".

"We've had a tremendously successful trip", Trump told reporters before departing his third summit of the trip. "Under such an atmosphere, Xi Jinping won't completely reject Trump' demands", said Cheng Xiaohe, associate professor of global relations at Renmin University in Beijing.

Still, Trump hit unfair trade practices in Asia hard and said deterring North Korean aggression was his first priority. He says it's "unacceptable" that the US trade deficit with other nations stands at about $800 billion a year.

"The reckless remarks spouted by Trump during his junkets can not but be viewed as the final confirmation of the White House's policy hostile to the DPRK, a total denial of the existence of the DPRK, and an open declaration of war", the North Korean report said.

China and Russian Federation have proposed that as a way to restart long-stalled negotiations, suggesting the North could freeze its nuclear and missile programs in exchange for the US and South Korea stopping regular military drills.

During the president's address in South Korea, he "painted a black picture of the [Democratic People's Republic of Korea], spouting all sorts of rubbish against it", North Korean state media asserted.

North Korea lashed out at President Donald Trump Wednesday, declaring that he has been "sentenced to death".

President Donald Trump says the USA and China agree that a "freeze-for-freeze" agreement with North Korea is not acceptable.

But beyond the rhetoric and smiling photo opportunities, questions remain as to what progress he actually made on either issue.

Back in 2011, the U.S. proposed the concept of a free and open "Indo-pacific region" but Trump has yet to spell out what that might mean, said Yoshinobu Yamamoto, professor of global relations at the University of Niigata Prefecture. He says he wants to update the nation on his "tremendous success". During these events, North Korea's nuclear crisis dominated the political agenda.

The president arrived in Washington late Tuesday after a almost two-week trip to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

China's announcement comes ahead of Trump saying he has a "major announcement" to make on the results of his 12-day Asia tour, namely on North Korea and trade.

According to Ryan Hass, former Asia adviser to Barack Obama, the presidential trip reinforced the impression that "the region is accelerating forward while the United States is looking backward".

The president also tweeted Wednesday that he was "forced" to watch CNN during the trip and "again realized how bad, and FAKE, it is".

Earlier, Trump used social media to spar with media coverage of his trip.
