Ahead of the talks, Phelim Kine, deputy director of Human Rights Watch's Asia division, told the New York Times he predicted the world would likely "see an alpha-male bromance between the two... The US President's willingness to challenge the appalling record of President Duterte's "war on drugs" is a crucial test of his administration's commitment to upholding and defending human rights".

He said what took place was a "rather lengthy discussion" of the Philippines' war on drugs "with President Duterte doing most of the explaining".

"Ladies and gentlemen, I sang uninvited a duet with Ms. Pilita Corrales upon the orders of the commander in chief of the United States", Duterte stated after he concluded his singing stunt, as heard in the video shared by Public Works Undersecretary, Karen Jimeno.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is adding entertainer to his role as host of the ASEAN summit, singing a duet on behalf of President Donald Trump.

Trump was among 20 foreign leaders in the Philippines for the summit, his first visit to the country as president.

Highlights have included a handshake with Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe that left him rolling his eyes (and another that was all fingers) - a white-knuckle exchange with French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin using his left arm to stop Trump pulling him in.
