Strike up the band
A Vietnamese military band performs during a welcoming ceremony for U.S. President Donald Trump at the Presidential Palace in Hanoi, Vietnam, on November 12, 2017. The official protocol opens with renditions of the U.S. and Vietnamese national anthems, followed by a presentation of the Vietnamese military and an inspection by Vietnam’s President Tran Dai Quang and Trump. “The president’s state visit to Vietnam marks a milestone in Vietnam-U.S. relations, creating strong momentum for the substantive, effective and stable development of the bilateral, comprehensive partnership,” Quang said, according to Voice of America.
