White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said human rights came up "briefly", but she didn't give any further detail.

Pacific Rim nation leaders agreed in Vietnam on Saturday to address "unfair trade practices" and "market distorting subsidies", a statement that bore the imprint of Trump's efforts to reshape the global trade landscape.

It's a known fact that US President Donald Trump isn't an expert when it comes to handshakes.

"It was red carpet like nobody, I think, has probably ever received", Trump said.

Kine later said this photograph of Trump twisting his face as he held hands with Duterte over the weekend should "live in infamy".

The Philippines president surprised his guests at an ASEAN summit gala dinner when he broke out in song, which Rodrigo Duterte joked he sang "upon the orders of the commander in chief of the United States".

"Our country would be better off without Trump's visit because aside from pushing and supporting for more military actions in the Philippines, like more airstrikes especially in Mindanao, he is also engaged in rabid saber-rattling in the Korean Peninsula that would have bad effects in the Philippines if war breaks out", Zarate said in a statement. "This has been very successful", Trump said.

In a side speech given during last week's summit of Asian leaders in Vietnam, Duterte called Obama "so black and arrogant", the Philippine Star reports.

Salvation Army held annual Red Kettle campaign kick off

Trump said during a news conference Sunday in Vietnam that he believes US intelligence agencies, which have concluded Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 USA presidential election to help him win.

"As to whether I believe it, I'm with our agencies", Trump said.

Even Trump's own CIA director, Mike Pompeo, felt compelled to defend USA intelligence findings that contradict Trump's defense of Putin.

Mr Trump eventually figured out his mistake but not before the unflattering images made it to Twitter.

Former CIA director John Brennan, appearing Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union", said Trump was deriding them in an attempt to "delegitimize" the intelligence community's assessment. While leaders crossed their arms to join hands with leaders next to them, Donald Trump awkwardly grabbed the hand of Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang with both hands.

Multiple congressional committees are also investigating.

Trump told reporters traveling with him to Hanoi on Saturday that Putin had again vehemently denied the allegations.

"Every time he sees me, he says: 'I didn't do that.' And I believe - I really believe - that when he tells me that, he means it", Trump said, arguing that it makes no sense for him to belabor the issue when Russian Federation could help the USA on North Korea, Syria and other issues.
