Philippine President Duterte serenades Trump at ASEAN gala

13 November 2017

The Philippines has historically been the United States' strongest ally in the region.

Calling President Duterte and Trump "fascists", Karapatan secretary general Tinay Palabay stressed how the USA supports the Duterte administration's bloody War on Drugs, giving $9 million to the program for 2017.

"At the age of 16, I already killed someone", he told a gathering of Filipinos in the Vietnamese city of Da Nang, where he was visiting ahead of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.

"I think the President has proven that he is not just the leader of the Philippine; he's not just the chairman of the ASEAN but he is a recognized leader for the rest of the developing world when he said that globalization should result in benefits for all", Roque said.

Duterte also said he got encouraging words from Chinese President Xi Jinping (China will be represented in this week's summit by Chinese Premier Li Keqiang) and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Authorities said no protester was reported injured from the incident.

Trump's time in the Philippines will be a delicate balancing act between praise and frankness with Duterte, a leader whose war on drugs has led to thousands of extrajudicial killings and drawn worldwide condemnation. She's been a critic of Duterte's approach to tackling the drug crisis, and denounced the government for carrying out "possible extrajudicial killings" and "a massive, government-led, human rights crisis". A real person, a rumble, a stabbing.

It is not the first time the Philippines leader has claimed to have killed someone.

Philippine presidential spokesman Harry Roque told CNN before the visit that he sees Trump and Duterte as "very much alike".
