This is all you need to read to understand the heartbreak of the story: "But their story was contradicted by witnesses and CCTV footage that showed the teenager being dragged down alleyways into a dead-end corner where he was asked to run with a gun, and shot when he did. He was heard screaming “Please can I go home, I have school tomorrow.”

"I just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem," Trump said in the April 29 phone call, according to a leaked transcript of the conversation with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte published by the Intercept and also obtained by The Washington Post and The New York Times."Many countries have the problem, we have a problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that."

Duterte responded that drugs were a “scourge” of his nation. Trump then added: “I think we had a previous president who did not understand that.”

Barack Obama had criticized Duterte’s drug fight, prompting the Philippine leader to refer to Obama as a “son of a whore”. The insult derailed a planned meeting between them. Strains also grew as Duterte sought warmer ties with China and threatened to end the US-Philippine military alliance.

In the call, Duterte described south-east Asian countries feeling “nervous” over North Korean rockets and warheads. He offered to call the Chinese president, Xi Jinping, to urge Beijing to use its leverage with Pyongyang. Trump, who hosted Xi at Trump’s Florida resort in April, described Xi as a “good guy”.

John Sifton, the Asia advocacy director for Human Rights Watch, criticized the contents of the conversation. “Trump’s celebration of Duterte’s record is nothing short of horrifying,” Sifton said. “It is an endorsement of the mass killing of the Philippines’ poorest and most vulnerable.”https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/may/24/trump-duterte-us-philippines-drugs-crackdown
