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.

Duterte was infuriated by expressions of concern by former President Barack Obama's administration about extrajudicial killings in the Philippines.

Hours after being sworn in as Philippine president, Duterte goes to a Manila slum and urges residents to kill drug-addled neighbors. More than 3,900 people have been killed as part of Duterte's crackdown, according to Reuters, though police have said the killings were in self-defense. And last week, while in Vietnam for an global summit, he said he took his first life years earlier.

Duterte, speaking in a mixture of Tagalog and English, said: "Jail?"

But as Trump was about to land on Friday, the White House announced no meeting would take place.

Carrying placards declaring "Dump Trump" and "Down with US Imperialism", the left-wing protesters were blocked by police in riot gear with shields and batons, and then showered with jets of water from a fire engine.

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.

Trump and Putin were expected to hold a formal meeting on the sidelines of the summit.
