4:06 pm
for you know what i mean thank you the orders of the commander in chief will be united states. the filipino rights groups say it's not just to tear tay singing that skewed. ahead of the summit the human rights groups had urged trying to confront a territory over his war on drugs a crackdown that's claimed about twelve thousand lives over the past year but if there was any criticism from trump it was not on display in manila trump showered his host a self-proclaimed killer with compliments and i want to thank you for your incredible hospitality and the show last night the talent at that show i assume mostly from the philippines was fantastic thank you. the camaraderie did not go down well with everyone police used water cannon to scare off angry protesters. but we believe that the meeting
4:07 pm
a lot bigger than the benefits for the filipino people at the diner was worse than the human rights situation in the philippines and the fact that it would be the fairest one they could not get it if the russian church in the white house said the two men's meeting focused on trade and fighting the so-called islamic state it said human rights came up briefly during discussions on the philippines fight against illegal drugs. well let's get more in donald trump's visit to the philippines so let's talk to correspondent ana santos in manila hi ana there is conflicting information over whether the issue of human rights was raised in the talks between these two leaders the white house says it was but the filipino government says it was not what are you hearing well the presidential spokesperson had earlier given a briefing two years of media after the bilateral talks between president trump and president putin and he said that human rights was not brought up the human rights issue is not brought out and therefore it was not discussed so that pretty much
4:08 pm
summarizes what the briefing that we got earlier today and i have to say that you know it's a huge disappointment for the international human rights. community who had hoped that president trump would use that as u.n. summit as the venue to drive to the human rights crisis in the philippines that's been brought about by president detect as war on drugs what about the reception that donald trump received as detectors government believe he really has one to trump over well you know it was you're talking about the protesters the message to him is clearly he is not welcome but you contrast that with the welcome that the president of the philippines president the charity has given him and you see really a lot of water you saw a lot of ribbing between the two men joking president child came in a traditional barrow took a lot he was also if you say been sprayed is using suppressive terms like tremendous fantastic so it seems that there is
4:09 pm
a warm relationship between the two men and that wasn't enjoyed by the predecessor of president trump i know we saw some of those images of the protests about where do most filipinos stand on donald trump. well the most filipinos don't trust him i have to state that. we got from a lot of the protesters was. distrust that americans feel for is something that they can identify with you have to remember that there are more than three million filipinos that live in america so the anti immigrant rhetoric of donald is something that is very hurtful and also you know something that a lot of filipinos are against so they see em as someone who is not an ally of you know the migrant aspirations of many filipinos all right correspondent on a sometimes reporting for us in manila thank you ana.
