Prior to Trump’s arrival in the Philippines, hundreds of protesters gathered outside the U.S. Embassy. Police fired water cannons to disperse the protesters. This is Renato Reyes, the head of the New Patriotic Alliance.

Renato Reyes: “Trump is no friend to the Filipino people. He brings war. He brings economic impositions. He wants to bring the U.S. 'war on terror' in the Philippines. He wants to drag us in the conflict of North Korea. He wants to bring back U.S. bases in the Philippines. These are things that are not beneficial to the Filipino people.”
