Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte wasted no time bashing the U.S. during his first state visit to China. Saying the U.S. has lost in the region, Duterte vowed to realign his nation with China.
And China's leaders seemed happy to accept that. The two nations agreed to sign $13.5 billion worth of deals this week. They also politely put aside the ongoing territorial dispute in the South China Sea.
