Trump arrives in Philippines amid protests

But Trump's affinity for strongmen - Russian President Vladimir Putin, Egypt's leaderr Abdel Fattah al-Sissi and Chinese Premier Xi Jinping to name a few - will be tested by the Philippines' leader, a man so ruthless that he has even compared himself to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. They were anxious that the U.S. intervention in the southern Philippines could worsen the situation, which is still recovering from battle against Islamist militants.

Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang said Sunday that his country wants to end disputes in the South China Sea through peaceful means.

Protesters shout slogans during a protest against US President Donald Trump's visit at the Philippine International Convention Centre in Manila November 11, 2017.

Upon winning election a year ago, he implemented a drug war that has seen thousands of people killed, including children. Trump has previously praised Duterte's handling of his nation's drug problems. "USA imperialism is tantamount to war, human rights violations, unfair economic policies, and the preservation of a world order that favors a wealthy few", Palabay said.

"While the South Korean people are opposing war threats against the north and demanding peace in the region, here is the president of the Philippines who could not even commit to peace in his own country, allowing the country as a launching pad of U.S. aggression and putting the Filipino population to the danger of nuclear obliteration", he said in a statement.

Hours after being sworn in as Philippine president, Duterte goes to a Manila slum and urges residents to kill drug-addled neighbours. Both Trump and Xi were following on from the latest APEC (Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation) summit that concluded Saturday in the coastal city of Danang, 470 miles (750 kilometers) south of Hanoi.

Meanwhile, Cambodia Prime Minister Hun Sen and Myanmar (Burma) leader Aung San Suu Kyi were among the first leaders to arrive in the Philippines to attend the summit of leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) and their dialogue partners. "Stabbing. That was when I was 16 years old, just because we just looked at each other", he said.

"The neo-liberal pillars of ASEAN such as deregulation, privatization and deregulation are historically proven to throw Filipino poor to inescapable cycle of poverty and misery, and at present with US President Trump's attendance, the world is being pushed to the brink of a nuclear war via his aggressive threats against North Korea", Casilao said.

Then-presidential candidate Duterte outlines plans to eradicate drugs in the Philippines by killing so many dealers it will unleash a boom for funeral businesses. "What the President is doing is being effective".

"Human rights are fundamental", they wrote.
