Duterte offers to hold human rights world summit

"He is not the [head of the] Human Rights Commission", he said.

Mr Duterte's advisers have in the past walked back similar boasts of violent acts by the president, telling journalists not to take what he said at his word.

The summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries in Vietnam put on show the contrasting vision of the "America First" policy with the traditional consensus favouring multinational deals that China now seeks to champion.

John Brennan, the former CIA director, responded Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that Trump was dismissing the former officials - himself included - as "political hacks" in an attempt to "delegitimize" the intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the election.
