Trump ahead of S. Korea visit: We will figure it all out

U.S. President Donald Trump struck an upbeat tone as he left for South Korea Monday, saying he and his counterpart, Moon Jae-in, will "figure it all out."

Trump wrote in a tweet apparently sent from Tokyo, the first leg of his five-nation Asia tour: "Getting ready to leave for South Korea and meetings with President Moon, a fine gentleman. We will figure it all out!"

Trump is set for a two-day state visit to South Korea from Tuesday (local time). He will hold a summit with Moon, make a speech before the National Assembly and meet with U.S. and South Korean service members at Camp Humphreys, a U.S. base south of Seoul.

The visit comes at a time of heightened tension over North Korea's pursuit of a nuclear missile capable of reaching the American mainland.

The two leaders are expected to discuss their joint response to the threat and address the U.S. trade deficit with South Korea.
