Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Sunday he was “sure” Donald Trump would not raise human rights concerns when they meet in Manila, after the US President praised his deadly drug war.
Trump is due to land in the Philippine capital on Sunday evening ahead of two days of summits, and rights groups have urged him to pressure Duterte over the thousands of lives lost in the controversial anti-drugs crackdown.

Duterte expressed confidence this would not happen, saying Trump had already given him “words of encouragement” during a brief encounter on the sidelines of another regional summit in Vietnam on Saturday.
