Activists later held their protests about a kilometre away from the venue and burned a 13-foot (4-metre) effigy of U.S. President Donald Trump.

You nearly feel sorry for him.

In Vietnam, Trump told business leaders the United States will no longer take part in multi-national trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership, or TPP. But none can take America's place in the world, and no US leader should ever create a leadership vacuum for other nations to fill.

The announcer's instructions briefly baffled Trump, who at first simply crossed his hands in front of him.

A member of the United States Congress on Monday said he is willing to lead a big protest rally if ever President Donald J. Trump invites President Rodrigo Duterte to visit Washington, D.C.

He grimaced at first, particularly when bending down to reach the hands of the two shorter leaders next to him. Trump also laughed as Duterte called the reporters there "spies."

The president spent the bulk of his public appearances emphasizing the need to reduce trade deficits, and also pushed for Asian nations to buy USA military equipment.

However, Duterte clearly appears to be getting on better with Trump than he did with the American president's predecessor, Barack Obama.

Earlier, a White House official reportedly said that Trump plans on discussing the human rights situation in the Philippines on his forthcoming meeting with Duterte.

"I think one of the things we really accomplished big is relationship, and also letting people know that from now on, things are going to be reciprocal", he said.

"The idea that a president of the United States would go there and not say anything, quite frankly in my opinion, is unconscionable. Those deficits are going to be cut very quickly and very substantially", Trump said.

Trump said his trip had resulted in at least $300 billion, possibly triple that figure, of deals being agreed.

"You're the only one", Trump responded.

The Philippines has clashed with China over disputed reefs and shoals in the waterway, which the two countries share, and Trump has used this month's Asia tour to offer to, as he said Sunday in Hanoi, "mediate or arbitrate" such disagreements.

Though the Obama administration promised a "pivot" to Asia, in part structured on human rights and US values diplomacy, there has always been a sense that USA influence in the Asia-Pacific region is waning while China's is on the rise. "[.] Every time he sees me he says, 'I didn't do that, ' and I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it".
