Duterte Promises to Treat Trump in 'Most Righteous Way' During Manila Meeting

Trump's meeting with Duterte will represent a shift in relations between the two countries, having previously called President Barack Obama a "son of a whore" and accusing him of treating the Philippines "like a dog" for his criticism of Duterte's drug crackdown program, which has involved thousands of extra-judicial killings.

"I am going to change my writer".

The President said the Philippines and Japan also agreed to intensify defense and security cooperation to combat terrorism, violent extremism and transnational crimes during his meeting with Abe.

Duterte said on Sunday that he hoped Japan, the US, South Korea and China would consider sending a representative to sit down with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to avoid a nuclear war, which he said was "totally unacceptable".

Duterte, who is fond of lengthy, freewheeling speeches, said he would skip parts of his statement because he was hungry. "I was truly impressed by the rousing welcome extended to me and my wife and my delegation", the Japanese leader said.

"The video clip featuring my stay in Davao City we put on the Prime Minister's Facebook account page actually marked over 100 - 1.3 million access counts, the greatest ever", Abe said. "So I would like to encourage Japanese to pay more attention to my Facebook account", he added.

Duterte said he would likewise extend the Filipinos' appreciation over Japan's "timely assistance" in addressing insurgency in the southern Philippines.

"All world leaders agree that he's a unsafe man", Duterte told a press conference before leaving for a two-day official visit to Japan, referring to Kim. Joseph Victor Ejercito, who accompanied Duterte on a visit to Japan this week.
