DANANG, Vietnam (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump's trip to Asia (all times local):

2:10 p.m.

President Donald Trump is continuing his tough talk against North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Trump told an audience of CEOs at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam that the region's future "must not be held hostage to a dictator's twisted fantasies of violent conquest and nuclear blackmail." He was referring to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump referenced his address in South Korea earlier this week when he called on countries to unite against North Korea. He said "every single step the North Korea regime takes toward more weapons is a step it takes into greater and greater danger."

Trump also says civilized people must "come together" to drive out terrorists and extremists from our societies.

President Donald Trump says he won't let the United States be "taken advantage of anymore" on trade and add that he'll always "put America first."

Trump is speaking Friday to a gathering of CEOs at the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang, Vietnam. He says: "we can no longer tolerate these chronic trade abuses and we will not tolerate them."

Trump says the U.S. will seek trade relationships that are rooted in the principles of fairness and reciprocity. He says the opposite has happened for "too long."

Trump says the United States has lowered market barriers but "other countries didn't open their markets to us."

He adds: "Simply put we have not been treated fairly by the World Trade Organization."
