President Trump is demonstrating a willingness to meet with some of the most notorious leaders on the world stage — a wheeling-and-dealing approach to diplomacy. In the span of 48 hours, President Trump announced that he had invited Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte — whose war on drugs has led to thousands of Filipinos lives being lost over the last year — to the White House.
