Trump will not visit the DMZ during his Asia trip

US President Donald Trump will not visit the heavily fortified demilitarized zone (DMZ) on the border of North Korea and South Korea during his upcoming Asia trip, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.  “The president is not going to visit the DMZ.
