- Trump will not visit heavily fortified DMZ on his Asia trip.
- Officials say there isn't enough time on his schedule.
- He will however visit Camp Humphreys, a military installation in South Korea.
U.S. President Donald Trump commences his tour of Asia later this week and according to sources from within his administration, he will not be visiting the demilitarized zone
(DMZ) which lies along the border between North Korea and South Korea.
"The president is not going to visit the DMZ. There is not enough time in the schedule," the official told reporters in a background briefing.
Instead, Trump will be the first American president to visit Camp Humphreys, a military installation south of the South Korean capital of Seoul.
"We thought that would make more sense in terms of its messaging, in terms of the chance to address families and troops there," the official said.
