London [UK], Oct. 22 : Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has claimed that President Barack Obama and the United States are despised around the world, which is driving countries such as the Philippines into the arms of its adversaries.
"The world hates our president. The world hates us. You saw what happened with the Philippines after years and years and years; they're now looking to Russia and China, because they don't feel good about the weak America" the Guardian quoted Trump, as saying at a Friday rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
On Thursday Duterte, who was on a state visit to China, declared "America has lost" and said it was China, the Philippines and Russia against the world.
However, after returning back from the visit, Duterte said in Manila on Friday that he would not sever ties as it was in his country's best interests to remain with the United States.
