CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — President Donald Trump’s upcoming visit to Asia will provide needed assurances amid ongoing concerns about North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, a South Carolina congressman who recently returned from his own trip to the area said Thursday.

“Obviously, with the threats from Kim Jong Un, they want to have reassurance of America’s commitment,” U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson said during a phone interview with The Associated Press on Thursday. “I just think it’s so reassuring that the president will be there.”

Wilson recently returned from a trip to Asia, where he led a delegation to countries including South Korea and Japan. He spoke with AP a day before Trump was set to leave for a trip that includes visits to those countries, plus China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
