Trump, Chinese president give contrasting speeches on global trade

U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart have set out starkly different visions for the future of global trade in speeches at a summit in Vietnam.
 
In a defiant address, Mr. Trump told the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (APEC) meeting that the US would no longer tolerate "chronic trade abuses".
 
In contrast, Chinese President Xi Jinping said globalisation was irreversible.
 
Mr. Trump is currently on a five-nation Asia tour, with China one of his stops.
 
APEC brings together 21 economies from the Pacific region - the equivalent of about 60% of the world's GDP.
