US President Donald Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte during a bilateral meeting at the Philippine International Convention Center in Pasay City on November 13, 2017. He publicly advocated his "America first" policies, warning USA trading partners that he was ready to take more protectionist steps in a bid to help American businesses and workers. "And I'm really proud of that". Polls prior to the visit showed only about 25 percent of Japanese people had confidence in Mr. Trump.

Earlier in the day, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau raised the plight of Rohingya refugees and extra-judicial killings in the Philippines at the summit, sensitive human rights issues skirted by nearly all the others. Trump raved about his accomplishments on his five-nation journey, particularly on trade and on North Korea, which the White House has suggested may be designated a state sponsor of terror.

"In my view", he told The Times, "President Trump has been fueling North Korean crisis by conducting fierce verbal attacks against North Korea's Kim Jong-un intentionally. Trump is showing very good at top sales diplomacy".

Mr. Turnbull said Australia will work with the U.S.to ensure stability.

"Terrorism and violent extremism endanger the peace, stability and security of our region because these threats know no boundaries", Duterte said, who last month declared victory over Islamic State-inspired militants in the southern Philippine city of Marawi. Although a White House official said that human rights were briefly mentioned when the leaders met on the sidelines of the ASEAN summit, Trump did not publicly mention the rights violations.

Among Trump's newest friends in the region is Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, whom Trump repeatedly praised and joked around with on Monday. Duterte then called the reporters "spies", which made Trump laugh.

A joint statement after the meeting said the two sides "underscored that human rights and the dignity of human life are essential, and agreed to continue mainstreaming the human rights agenda in their national programs".

Duterte has been embroiled in controversies ever since he took the Philippines' presidential seat in June previous year.
