Duterte's singing is the metaphor of a 'love ballad'

Donald Trump has been getting flattery and royal treatment from Asian leaders during his Asian tour. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte singing a song for him is the metaphor of a "love ballad", says FRANCE 24's foreign affairs commentator Douglas Herbert. Herbert adds that Trump will return back to the US saying that he had a "fantastic trip" but that, in reality, Asian nations do not need the US as much as before.
