Trump lands in Philippines, final stop in Asia
MANILA, Philippines (AP) — President Donald Trump has arrived in the Philippines to attend a pair of international summits and close his five-country tour of Asia.
Trump is slated to meet several times with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte (doo-TEHR'-tay). Duterte has come under intense criticism from human rights advocates for overseeing a violent drug crackdown that includes extrajudicial killings. Trump has previously praised Duterte's handling of his nation's drug problems.
Trump was originally scheduled to depart Manila on Monday but he added a day to the visit so he could more fully participate in one of the summits.
He arrived in Manila on Sunday after a brief stop in Vietnam.
Trump also visited Japan, South Korea and China.
