US President Donald Trump has landed in South Korea, with the North’s nuclear ambitions high on his agenda. He flew in from Tokyo, after saying on Monday that Japan could shoot down Pyongyang’s missiles with US equipment. Trade will also be a key focus for Trump, who wants fresh terms for the US-South Korea free trade agreement. He will meet President Moon Jae-in, US troops and local politicians. Trump is currently on a five-nation tour of Asia, his first as president.
