Trump Praises ‘Great Relationship’ With Duterte in Pair’s First Meeting

President Donald Trump ignored shouted questions about human-rights abuses as he met with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte in Manila today. About 2,000 protesters demanding Trump “go home” were repelled by riot police just a few miles away from where the two leaders met on the sidelines of a major summit in the city.

Despite the controversy outside, Trump praised the “great relationship” he said he has with Duterte, who has faced international criticism for his tactics in a drug war that rights groups say has involved thousands of extrajudicial killings. During a brief sit-down with the Philippine leader, Trump did not respond to questions from reporters about human-rights abuses in the country, and Duterte told the crowd the bilateral meeting was not meant to be a press conference. Trump has previously commended Duterte for the “great job” he’s been doing in countering the illegal drug trade. Read more.
