Duterte serenades Trump during Asia tour

Duterte serenades Trump during Asia tour”

Trump replied: "We've had a great relationship. The massive TRADE deficits must go down quickly!"

Trump is teasing a "major statement" on trade and North Korea in Washington on Wednesday when he returns.

Trump's five-nation tour of Asia include stops in Japan, South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines. But Trump remains dogged by things he has said, and has not said, about Russian Federation.

Mr Duterte, who once referred to Barack Obama as a "son of a b****" began the talks by telling Mr Trump: "We are your ally". "Before Trump's arrival, sense of anxiety was widely spread in Seoul". A lot of the issues that underpin the U.S.

Harry Roque, a spokesman for Duterte, said "there was no mention of human rights". Duterte has seemed less committed to the strategic partnership with the U.S.

"This is a tremendous concern to Canada and to many, many countries around the world", he said.

"I think Mr Putin is very clever in terms of playing to Mr Trump's interest in being flattered".

After Trump's last meeting with Putin in July, he was roundly ridiculed by members of both parties after proposing that the U.S. and Russian Federation team up to form an "impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe".

"As to whether I believe it, I'm with our agencies", Trump said. "And that really is a sign of respect, perhaps for me a little, but really for our country". Polls prior to the visit showed only about 25 percent of Japanese people had confidence in Mr. Trump. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called Trump's Asia visit "embarrassing", asserting that the president is not ready for "primetime".

But, as with the story of Trump and the koi pond in Japan last week, the picture is more damning than the video. In it, Trump's face recalls the expression he pulled while infamously seated at the wheel of a semi truck at the White House back in March - a photo that also lit up the internet as proof, to some, of Trump's immaturity. "Trump is showing very good at top sales diplomacy".

"The key for us is to ensure very close trilateral cooperation so as to bring peace and stability on the ground", said the Japanese leader.

"Except us", Turnbull chimed in, to laughs. For now, the conflicting reports are the only answers that anyone will get.

As they met, three US aircraft carrier strike groups were participating in a massive naval drill in the western Pacific waters as a show of force.

And in a highly surreal moment, President Duterte serenaded Mr Trump with a special love song.

But a spokesperson for the Philippine leader says the topic did not come up during their discussions.

Human Rights Watch said that even children are being targeted and described the issue as a "new level of depravity". It is unclear whether Trump raised the issue of human rights when he saw Duterte.
