The cross-body exercise sees each leader extend their right arm over their left to shake the opposite hands of those next to them.

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders meanwhile said the issue was discussed by the two leaders.

Eyes will be on whether Trump does the fist pump, having told Duterte in April he was doing a "great job" in his drug war. And in a highly surreal moment, President Duterte serenaded Mr Trump with a special love song. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't say if Trump had been critical of Duterte's violent war on the illegal drug trade.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I sang uninvited a duet with Ms. Pilita Corrales upon the orders of the commander in chief of the United States", Duterte stated after he concluded his singing stunt, as heard in the video shared by Public Works Undersecretary, Karen Jimeno.

Handshakes have become a focal point of Trump's first year in office with the Republican being photographed using a full arsenal of unusual grips and techniques with various world leaders.




President Donald Trump is holding friendly talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India as he nears the end of his lengthy Asia trip. Modi says relations between the USA and India are "growing very rapidly" and "getting deeper and more comprehensive".

Though presented with several opportunities to do so, President Donald Trump reportedly did not raise any concerns about human rights abuses or the "bloodstained" drug war being carried out by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte during a face-to-face meeting on Monday.

"When he comes face-to-face with President Duterte, he'll be meeting a man whose policies are responsible for thousands of unlawful killings, including dozens of children and the extrajudicial execution of many others, which may constitute crimes against humanity".

Global human rights group Amnesty International (AI), meanwhile, urged Trump to press the Philippine government to uphold human rights in the country.
