Philippines President Duterte accepts Modi's invite

President Donald Trump is tweeting that after his lengthy trip to Asia "all Countries dealing with us on TRADE know that the rules have changed".

President Donald Trump is holding friendly talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India as he nears the end of his lengthy Asia trip.

"We've made a lot of big progress on trade", said Mr. Trump, pointing to business deals forged between USA and foreign companies.

But critics warn the gesture has come to represent the brutalities of Duterte's drug war, which has claimed thousands of lives. Duterte seemed confident he had Trump's backing for his deadly war on drugs.

President Donald Trump says his trip to Asia has been "tremendously successful". Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't say if Trump had been critical of Duterte's violent war on the illegal drug trade. "Human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines' fight against illegal drugs".

Trump is slated to meet several times with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte (doo-TEHR'-tay). He said there had been a "rather lengthy discussion of the Philippine war on drugs".

In Manila for the Asean conference, Trump looked to strengthen ties with Pacific Rim allies, aiming to strike one-on-one trade deals rather than multinational trade agreements, and increase pressure on North Korea to abandon its nuclear programme.

Due to arrive in Washington late Tuesday night, the president said he will make major announcements on trade and North Korea on Wednesday at the White House.

He met with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and highlighted their two nations' "deeper and more comprehensive" ties, looking to strengthen a relationship that is vital to the United States vision of an Indo-Pacific region that attempts to de-emphasise China's influence. Instead, Trump said he and Duterte have "had a great relationship" and avoided questions about whether he'd raise human rights concerns with the Filipino leader during a private meeting.

"President Trump expressed his condolences for the tragic loss of life in Marawi City at the hands of ISIS-affiliated terrorists, and congratulated the Armed Forces of the Philippines for its success in liberating Marawi", according to a joint statement released after the bilateral meeting between Trump and Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday, November 13.
