There was no pressure from Trump over the Philippines' bloody war on drugs during a meeting on Monday with President Rodrigo Duterte on the sidelines of the summit.
American president Donald Trump met with Mr Duterte yesterday, and his office reported they briefly discussed human rights and the Philippines' war on drugs. And in a highly surreal moment, President Duterte serenaded Mr Trump with a special love song.
Trump says he'll have more to say about trade at the White House later this week.
Trump replied: "We've had a great relationship".
President Rodrigo Duterte did not attend a meeting between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the United Nations due to a conflict of schedule, the Department of Foreign Affairs said Tuesday.
When Mr Trump was asked if he would raise human rights at the meeting, Mr Duterte said: "Whoa, whoa".

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he had made clear during his trip to Asia that the United States was open to trading with other countries, but only if conditions were fair for his country.
President Donald Trump is wrapping up his extensive trip to Asia with an worldwide summit and one-on-one meetings with global partners, including his Philippine host who is overseeing a bloody drug war. "We are an important ally", Duterte told Trump at the beginning of their talks, according to reporters allowed in to the meeting room. "Human rights briefly came up in the context of the Philippines' fight against illegal drugs".
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 U.S. vision of an Indo-Pacific region that attempts to de-emphasise China's influence.
Trump announced on Twitter that he will be making a "major statement" when he returns to Washington.
"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". Duterte then called the reporters "spies", which made Trump laugh.
More than 3,900 pushers and users have been killed in the war on drugs that Duterte declared when he took office a year ago.
