President Donald Trump stood before a summit of Asian leaders keen on regional trade pacts and delivered a roaring "America First" message Friday, denouncing China for unfair trade practices just a day after he had heaped praise on President Xi Jinping in Beijing.There, Trump opted for flattering Xi and blaming past U.S. presidents for the trade deficit. Trump said China's trade surplus, which stood at $223 billion for the first 10 months of the year, was unacceptable. Behind the scenes, White House officials quietly negotiated with the Kremlin over whether Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin would hold a formal meeting on the sidelines in Da Nang, with the Russians raising expectations for such a session.
