Democratic Rep. Ami Bera (Calif.), vice ranking member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, praised President Donald Trump's Asia trip on Monday.
During an appearance on MSNBC, host Ali Velshi opened the discussion by mentioning Bera's experience with the region.
"You met with the prime minister of Japan and the new president of South Korea," Velshi said. "What is it that you think is the best thing for the president to do while he's there?"
"You know, I was with Prime Minister Abe last Monday, and one, I'm not used to praising President Trump, but kudos to him for starting the trip off in Japan and Korea," Bera said.
