Trump Campaign Says CNN Refuses to Run Ad Touting Success

Trump Campaign Says CNN Refuses to Run Ad Touting Success

WASHINGTON-A top aide on Sunday defended President Donald Trump's invitation to President Rodrigo Duterte to visit Washington, saying the need to rally Asian allies over North Korea overshadowed concerns about Duterte's brutal war on drugs. The bill does not deliver everything the White House sought, but it would be the first major piece of bipartisan legislation to advance during Trump's time in the White House. "I said, 'Has to be'". Previous year he branded then U.S. president Barack Obama a "son of a whore" for criticizing the drug war. It denies Trump a win on his oft-promised wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, but gives him a down payment on his request to strengthen the military and funding for additional border security measures.

For instance, he expressed admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin during the 2016 presidential campaign, hosted Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi at the White House and has had warm words for Chinese President Xi Jinping, who Trump is pressing to do more to rein in its ally and neighbor North Korea.

Police say they have killed only in self-defence, and the deaths of other drug dealers and users was down to vigilantes or narcotics gangs silencing potential witnesses.

Kine said separately in an emailed response to questions from The Associated Press that Trump may be undertaking action inimical to human rights by adopting an overly friendly overture to Duterte, who is facing a complaint for alleged mass murder before the International Criminal Court.

In his phone conversation with Trump, Duterte said he relayed the region's alarm over the North Korean standoff.

North Korea suggested today it would continue its nuclear weapons tests, saying it will bolster its force "to the maximum" in a "consecutive and successive way at any moment" in the face of what it calls U.S. aggression and hysteria. "The issue on the table is North Korea".

Greenwood died when his delivery truck collided with a truck Williams was driving in southern Missouri during his getaway. State officials have declared the string of executions a success, using terms like "closure" for the victims' families.


The Philippines is a Roman Catholic-majority country but the church does not approve of President Duterte's call for violence.

The last time Trump attended the dinner was in 2011, when he was a NY real estate mogul and reality TV star who had just jumped into politics by getting involved in the "birther" movement, calling for President Barack Obama to release his birth certificate. And he often spoke warmly of President Vladimir Putin of Russia-until differences over Syria erupted. -Philippine alliance "is now heading in a very positive direction". He also declared while in Beijing a year ago that the Philippines had "separated" from the United States.

"Countries with close bilateral ties to the Philippines, particularly the United States, have an obligation to urge accountability for the victims of Duterte's abusive drug war, rather than offer to roll out the red carpet for official state visits with its mastermind", Kine said in a statement.

However, Mr. Bolivar explained that Mr. Trump's invitation has not been formally sent.

"We are not going to let other countries take advantage of us anymore", he said Saturday in Harrisburg at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center.
