But he extended the trip after he was criticized for planning to miss the events. Duterte has seemed less committed to the strategic partnership with the U.S.

"After the November 8 National Assembly speech, South Koreans are shedding their image of Donald Trump who haphazardly sees South Korea just another faraway country he does not want to understand", he said. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, on the other hand, said specifically that "human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines' fight against illegal drugs".

Duterte cursed Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, previous year for raising concerns about the war on drugs and he subsequently declared that he was breaking with the United States, a close ally of the Philippines since World War Two.

Duterte's war on drugs has alarmed human rights advocates around the world who say it has allowed police officers and vigilantes to ignore due process and to take justice into their own hands.

A communications official with the Duterte administration said the Philippines president and Trump "really hit it off".

"Ladies and gentlemen, I sang uninvited, upon the orders of the commander-in-chief of the United States", Duterte later said, according to the ABS-CBN news channel.

"I think he's giving Putin a pass and I think it demonstrates to Putin that Donald Trump can be played by foreign leaders who are going to appeal to his ego and play upon his securities", Brennan said.

US President Donald Trump congratulated the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) for the liberation of Marawi City from local armed groups that pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS).

As handshake diplomacy goes, this time it might not be quite as awkward as it first appears for President Trump: In photos with Asian leaders at a summit in the Philippines, he is momentarily caught off-guard by what is called the "ASEAN-way handshake" - crossed arms and joined arms meant to signify regional unity.

Modi says Trump "has expressed a very high opinion of India" in his travels. And while White House aides have been pleased with the president's messaging through stops in Japan, South Korea and China, Trump has brought Russian Federation to the forefront again as he makes his final stops.

Trump was meeting Monday with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and dining with Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull ahead of the East Asia summit in Manila. While human rights groups were pressing the US President to take a tough stance on Duterte's bloody war on drugs, the issue reportedly did not see the prime light during their discussion.

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.
