Many presidents are glad to get away from 'the land of the free', about mid-term, and stride the world with dignity and protocol, meeting people whose expectations of getting anything from the White House are very low indeed.
Has anyone else thought the bullying, fire-breathing demagoging Trump actually turns out to be keen to please in a one-on-one situation? eg the fulsome personal warmth to Xi Jinping, and on other occasions to President Macron, President Nieto etc ; persons he had previously announced to be ideological adversaries.
At least in Da Nang, unlike Presidents John Kerry and John McCain ( had they been elected), Trump won't have the embarrassment of regaling his hosts with stories of 'the last time I came through here' [on a Zippo raid with the Green Berets], as he wisely stayed Stateside during the sixties getting several draft deferments as a student.
