United Nations human rights expert Agnes Callamard has been a vocal critic of the operation and called for the establishment of a "strong independent human rights institution" in the Philippines.

Speaking to his Vietnamese counterpart, Tran Dai Quang in Hanoi, Trump said he could employ his diplomatic skills to help Asian nations come to an agreement over competing maritime claims.

Addressing the local Filipino community, Duterte said he was not afraid to go to jail, referencing the killing to drive home his point.

"Trump is the CEO of the imperialist government of the United States, said 18-year-old student Alexis Danday after the protesters were scattered".

"You f**k with my countrymen, I won't let you off the hook".

"You want to ask a question, I'll give you an answer".

"We have to be friends, the other hotheads would like us to confront China and the rest of the world on so many issues", Duterte said at a pre-summit business conference in Manila.

The Philippines will be Trump's last stop on a marathon tour that has taken him to Japan, South Korea, China as well as Vietnam.

Both protests called on the government to "ban Trump".

"Trump's explicit eagerness to meet with the architect of a killing campaign that has resulted in the deaths of more than 12,000 men, women and children over the past 16 months is more than a grievous insult to injury for family members of victims".

China claims sovereignty over all of South China Sea, a huge source of hydrocarbons.
