WH: Trump likely not to visit Korea's DMZ during Asia trip

NEW YORK (AP) - President Donald Trump is not planning to visit the border between North and South Korea known as the Demilitarized Zone when he visits Asia next month.

The White House says Trump instead plans to visit Camp Humphreys, a military base about 40 miles south of Seoul. The White House says time constraints would likely not permit Trump to do both, although plans could still change.

Most U.S. presidents have visited the border as a signal to South Korea and other allies that the U.S. will not stand for any aggression from the rogue North Korean regime. Vice President Mike Pence visited the DMZ earlier this year.

South Korea is one of five nations Trump will visit during 12-day Asia trip in early November.

    In the bitter cold last night residents of a senior living community in Eastern Pennsylvania were evacuated. It's amazing that no one died because the multi-story building became a towering inferno. Seven patients are being treated for smoke inhalation.  And this massive fire did injure about 20 people.  The source of the fire is still under investigation.  It's not yet known if the sprinklers kicked on.  In all, 160 people were evacuated.
