In Manilla, as Trump arrived in the Phillippines, protestors marched in the street towards the U.S. Embassy. Riot police were called in to block the march as they shouted chants against the U.S. President. “Trump not welcome,” they yelled, holding signs that read “Ban Trump” and “Dump Trump.”
Some protestors threw black paints on a poster of Trump’s face reading “fascist” underneath.
“Trump is no friend of 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 politics in North Korea. He wants to bring back U.S. bases in the Philippines. He does things that are not beneficial to the Filipino people,” one protestor said.
“Trump represents the worst aspects of US imperialism,” the left-wing group Bagong Alyansang Makabayan told the Southeast Asia Globe. “He is right now the biggest threat to regional peace with his provocations against North Korea.”
This might be the best way for Trump to end his Asian tour—seeing even more people around the world who want Trump out of their country. Lucky for them, he’ll be leaving soon. America is stuck with him, for the time being.
