Da Nang, Vietnam (CNN)
US President Donald Trump has been relatively disciplined during his tour of Asia so far.
When he has strayed from well-scripted lines, one could almost feel his team wince.
Trump delivers 'America first' speech at Asia-Pacific economic summit
Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, as the President's host, blanched as Trump told him America would be first and Japan could be second while at the same time calling for balanced, fair and reciprocal trade.
It was jarring, and he would later see the cost, but it hasn't been the norm.
Indeed in China, Trump seemed to have been on a charm offensive with President Xi Jinping. Far from humiliating him about his pet peeve, the US trade deficit with China that he called "horrible" on the campaign trail last year, he gave the Chinese President a free pass.
Trump's uncharacteristic supplication seemed to have broken new ground, telling XI it wasn't China's fault but a US mistake: "I have great respect for you for that, because you are representing China, but it is too bad that past administrations allowed it to get so far out of kilter."
A pattern seems to be emerging. Despite his tub-thumping rhetoric, Trump is like a schoolyard bully: all talk until he meets his match.

Maybe that's why Putin was called in to meet with him in Vietnam. Pence was sensing me might be losing control of this orange haired freak
we are stuck with as president.
