A readout of a conversation between Trump and Duterte April 29 stated that the pair had a "very friendly" discussion and that US-Philippine relations are "now heading in a very positive direction", Reuters reported.

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have intensified, with the latter conducting another ballistic missile test Friday, just hours after the U.S. convened a United Nations meeting to demand more pressure on the isolated country. And although US ties with Japan and South Korea also remain strong, it would be unwise to alienate allies in that part of the world.

"The issues facing us developing out of North Korea are so serious that we need cooperation at some level with as many partners in the area as we can get to make sure we have our ducks in a row", he said. "I can not make any definite promise".

"I can not make any definite promise", Duterte told reporters, citing scheduled trips to Russia, Israel and elsewhere.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Robespierre Bolivar said that once a formal letter of invitation came it would be accepted.

In a statement provided to TNW , Google says it estimates 0.1 per cent of Gmail users were affected. Google has already stated awareness of the issue and is now launching an investigation on it.

Trump even mused to Bloomberg that he might be willing to invite North Korean leader Kim Jong Un to the White House.

Spicer said it was because of Trump's effort that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are increasing their desire for peace.

Duterte publicly sparred with former President Obama by using curses and racial epithets to describe him. [I told him:] 'I am calling you [upon] the behest of President of the United States, President Trump. He has already hosted Egyptian strongman Abdel Fatah el-Sissi, and not long after speaking to Duterte he issued another red-carpet invitation to Thailand's Prayuth Chan-ocha, who led a military coup against an elected government in 2014 and has since overseen a sweeping crackdown on dissent.

"It's not a "thank you", the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity. "We were not surprised".

According to the Department of Foreign Affairs and the Chinese Foreign Ministry, Xi and Duterte exchanged views about regional developments and how some concerns can be addressed during conversation. "And, frankly, the national interests of the United States, the safety of our people and the safety of people in the region are the number one priorities of the president".

Cinco de Mayo in Trump era leaves Mexican-Americans torn
The festival will include a vehicle show, music, food, a beer and margarita garden, vendors and activities for children. To clear up any confusion, El Mirador will host an event dubbed The Not Independence Day Pachanga from 5 to 11 p.m.

If he declines the White House invitation, Bozzato said, Duterte may agree to meet Trump at a conference in Asia later this year instead.

Duterte rose to the presidency in June 2016 in the wake of a hardline campaign promising to kill thousands on both sides of the Filipino drug trade, deploying militias and offering bounties to vigilante killers.

"Most victims were poor drug users and low-level criminals, but bystanders, children and political opponents were also caught up in the bloodshed".

Of course, the USA invitation has drawn sharp criticism from human rights activists. The government denies that.

Since coming to office past year, Duterte has courted China, Washington's main rival in Asia, despite a maritime sovereignty dispute.

Battle between President and Press Continues
Now, the one thing I wouldn't have done again is put a timeline. "It's just a very, very bureaucratic system", the President said. He also said he has issued a new order to hire American and buy American. "We have to address the elephant not in the room".

Trump began his second 100 days in office by surprising his senior staff and probably even Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte by inviting Duterte to the White House.
