“Getting ready to leave for South Korea and meetings with President Moon, a fine gentleman. We will figure it all out!” the president tweeted at 6 a.m.

The tweet followed one he posted just before, on his trip in Japan.

“My visit to Japan and friendship with PM Abe will yield many benefits, for our great Country. Massive military & energy orders happening+++!” he wrote.

An active Twitter user, President Trump made 10 tweets just on his three-day trip in Japan, recording the moments -- from the welcoming ceremony to his official addresses and golf match with the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

President Trump is expected to land here at noon and kick off the two-day state visit to South Korea at the Camp Humphreys US military base in Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi Province. He will also meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and give a speech at the National Assembly.
