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

8:40 a.m.

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev says he had a chance to talk briefly with President Donald Trump during the ASEAN summit dinner in Manila.

Asked about his impressions, Medvedev is quoted by Russian news agencies as saying Trump is "open and friendly," adding that it "was comfortable to discuss various subjects with him."

He added: "Among other things, we remembered the history of our relations with the U.S., WW II, some other issues."

Medvedev said Russia-U.S. relations are "at the lowest point in decades" and that "our relations have degraded day after day."

4:30 a.m.

President Donald Trump is heading back to Washington following a lengthy tour of Asia that he declared "tremendously successful."

Trump says the trip has put the world on notice that the "rules have changed" for countries that want to trade with the U.S.

Trump also says he'll make a "major statement" about trade and the trip later this week at the White House.

The president left Washington on Nov. 3 for a nearly two-week trip to Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.

Trump also strategized with U.S. allies about the North Korean nuclear threat.
