Bharara rips Trump for inviting 'admitted killer' to White House

According to a statement released by the White House, Trump and President Rodrigo Duterte had a "friendly discussion" Saturday that addressed regional security in Southeast Asia and the drug war in the Philippines'.

Duterte's statement on President Donald Trump's invitation is seen to come at a time when the Philippines is giving priority to its relations with China.

A USA -based human rights group says President Donald Trump should seek accountability and not offer to roll out the White House red carpet for Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte, who the group accuses of being a mass murder "mastermind" amid the thousands of deaths in his anti-drug crackdown.

"There is nothing right now facing this country and facing the region that is a bigger threat than what's happening in North Korea", Priebus said.

Trump invited Duterte for a visit after a "very friendly" call on Saturday.

Duterte's spokesman, Ernesto Abella, said Trump was very much aware of the criticism of Duterte, but had praised him for "doing a great job considering the weight and the enormity of the conditions in the Philippines". In a sign of lingering tensions between the two countries, Mr Duterte later said he might be too busy to make the trip.

In the NBC interview, Trump repeated his assertion that Comey three times assured him he was not under investigation. Sanders said Thursday that Trump would "love nothing more for this investigation to continue to its completion".

On Monday, despite hinting that he could snub the United States president, Duterte said relations with Washington were improving with Trump in office rather than Barack Obama, who criticized the Philippine president for his anti-drug war, which has claimed thousands of lives.

As Asean chairman, he last week said he would urge Mr Trump not to be provoked by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, warning of a catastrophe if the situation intensified and that Mr Kim "wants to end to the world". Duterte is best known for the extrajudicial killings of drug dealers and drug users, a "war on drugs" officially named "Operation Double Barrel".

Duterte, however, seems hesitant on accepting the invitation of Trump to the White House as he still has scheduled trips to Russian Federation and Israel.

The Foreign Affairs Department is yet to respond to the offer by Trump and only an official invitation from the United States would start the diplomatic arrangements that needed to be made. "Top priority is protecting the American people". During just the first six months of his tenure, Duterte reportedly killed more than 6,000 people as part of a crackdown on the country's drug trade.

"Admin attacks crime approach of NYC - America's safest large city - then invites admitted killer, Philippine Pres Duterte, to White House", Bharara tweeted Sunday.
