US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has the world on tenterhooks after tweeting a cryptic message vowing to make a "major statement" once he returns from his East Asian tour.
What exactly he will announce is a mystery but he promised to reveal all when back home in the White House.
The maverick president is famed for his puzzling tweets, which often stump even the most expert of political pundits.
In October, a tweet referred to the “calm before the storm” which led to a flurry of speculation.
And in the latest tweet he wrote: “I will be making a major statement from the @WhiteHouse upon my return to D.C. Time and date to be set.”
I will be making a major statement from the @WhiteHouse upon my return to D.C. Time and date to be set.

Trump is returning from his tour of Japan, China, South Korea, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Wrapping up the tour, Trump tweeted: “After my tour of Asia, all Countries dealing with us on TRADE know that the rules have changed.
The North Korean crisis was also top of the agenda with comments made by Kim Jong-un to Donald Trump still apparently hurting the President’s feelings.
Trump took to Twitter to lash out at Kim saying he would never call him "short and fat" before sarcastically jibing that he was trying "so hard to be his friend".
Trump made the comment on Twitter after accusing the North Korean tyrant of calling him "old", probably referring to Kim’s comment earlier this month when he dubbed his adversary a “lunatic old man”.
Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me "old," when I would NEVER call him "short and fat?" Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!
