(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) South Korean protesters and supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump held separate rallies in front of U.S. military base 'Camp Humphreys' on Tuesday (November 7) as he visited the base. About 20 civic group members protested against Trump's visit, while hundreds of people waved U.S. flags to welcome him to the base. Arriving in South Korea on the second stop of a five-country trek earlier in the day, Trump toured the main garrison for U.S. troops stationed in South Korea, the sprawling Camp Humphreys, which lies about 100 km (60 miles) from the border with reclusive North Korea. Later in the day, Trump will have talks with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the Blue House, hold a joint news conference and attend a state dinner with traditional music and K-pop performances. He will wrap up his visit on Wednesday (November 8) with an address to the National Assembly. The White House said Trump's trip is intended to demonstrate U.S. resolve over his hard-line approach to the North Korean nuclear and missile threats, but many in the region feared that further bellicose rhetoric could increase the potential for a devastating military conflict on the Korean peninsula.
