Butch Olano, Amnesty International Philippines Director, said, "President Trump has spoken about his ability to talk tough with foreign leaders, and this week's ASEAN summit presents a renewed opportunity to raise the horrifying human rights abuses that the region is facing".

Trump said he would wait until his return to Washington on Wednesday to elaborate with a "major statement" on those two topics but hinted at progress while in Manila.

The 31st ASEAN Summit is the most important event of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations that groups Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Việt Nam.

"It was red carpet like nobody, I think, has probably ever received", Trump said. However, at some point into the banquet, Duterte, seated next to Trump in his formal Philippines long-sleeved white shirt, suddenly stood up and startled his guests with a vocal performance.

"It was President Duterte who brought up with President Trump the drug menace in the Philippines, and the US president appeared sympathetic and did not have any official position on the matter but was merely nodding his head", he said, adding he was present.

In China, Trump squandered the opportunity to deliver an unequivocal message condemning Beijing's unfair trade practices and its risky military adventurism in the South China Sea. And he is slated to have dinner with Turnbull.

It must be said that Trump and Duterte also share ideological affinity.


He arrived in Manila on Sunday after a brief stop in Vietnam.

US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election to help the Republican Trump defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton. "The peoples' opposition would further grow and we will hound Trump with continuous protests", Zarate said.

On Saturday, Trump lashed out at former heads of the US intelligence agencies, claiming there are plenty of reasons to be suspicious of their findings and dismissing them as "political hacks".

James Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, called the threat from Russian Federation "manifest and obvious".

President Trump and President Duterte at the Asean Conference in November 2017When did Duterte meet Donald Trump?

A special counsel's examination of potential collusion between Moscow and Trump campaign aides so far has led to indictments against Trump's former campaign chairman and another top aide for crimes unrelated to the campaign, and a guilty plea from a Trump foreign policy adviser for lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

On the occasion, the Vietnamese leader will join the ninth Mekong-Japan Summit and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) Leaders' Meeting. But Trump too often allows America First to be translated for his foreign audiences into a turntail US retreat from the world stage.
