Prior to leaving Philippines, United States President Donald Trump highlighted how successful his trip was. “The relationship with the past administration was horrible, to use a nice word,” he said.
“And now we have a very, very strong relationship with the Philippines, which is really important – less so for trade, in this case, than for military purposes,” Trump said.
“It is a strategic location – the most strategic location. And, if you look at it, it’s called the most prime piece of real estate from a military standpoint,” he explained.
Trump said US relationship now with Philippines is better.
“So it’s very important that we get along with the Philippines, and we really do. We have a very good relationship. I would actually say probably better than ever before,” he said.
