Trump warned on Duterte fist salute in Manila

Trump warned on Duterte fist salute in Manila

After new presidential spokesperson Harry Roque's comparison on the two leaders' similarities, US President Donald J. Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte finally met at APEC 2017 in Vietnam earlier today (Saturday).

"He considers the president of China as a valuable friend", Ramon Lopez said in an interview in Vietnam on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum summit.

"They (Putin and Xi) have extended their open support for us in fighting terrorism and [illegal] drugs. It's easy to talk to them because they're also suffering from the same drug scourge", the President said. "I can confirm that the fishermen are now in the custody of the Philippine Navy and that they are being debriefed and [will] soon be seen by Vietnamese authorities", he added.

Australia's spy chief, Nick Warner, was criticised when he returned home from Manila in August to find the Philippine government had released photos of him clenching his fist with Duterte.

"Well, he (Trump) can not afford it". We do not talk about these things because, first of all, they are not true and, second, we do not do it. I'm sure he will not take it up. "He does not call me out over my campaign about human rights".

Local and global human rights organizations claim that 7,000 to 13,000 suspected drug personalities have been killed without charges or trial in the course of the government's campaign against illegal drugs. Airport officials said he arrived at 5:45 p.m.at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

Last year, he was reported to have branded then-U.S. president Barack Obama a "son of a wh**e" over criticism of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines, although he later said the curse was targeted at a reporter.

The President insisted that he is keeping his campaign promise to uphold law and order. I can not escape that from my duty so I have every right to ask him.

"When I was a teenager, I would go in and out of jail", Mr Duterte said in remarks captured on camera.

Mr Duterte made the assertion on Thursday in a meeting with the Filipino community in Da Nang, Vietnam, where he and leaders from other Pacific Rim countries were gathered for a meeting of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.

Meanwhile, Duterte told Xi in Vietnam that he will raise the dispute over the South China Sea as chairman of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit this week.
