Protesters in Manila burned an effigy of Trump shaped like a swastika


Demonstrators in Manila, Philippines burned an effigy, shaped like a swastika of President Donald Trump, in protest of his participation in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations summit (ASEAN.)

On Sunday, riot police used shields and water hoses to push back hundreds of left-wing activists, who tried to hold a protest at the U.S. Embassy and carried placards that read, "Ban Trump."

At least 20 protesters were injured in a brief scuffle and one person was arrested, according to protest leaders. Adding that the demonstrators dispersed after burning a mock U.S. flag and the effigy.

Trump visited the Philippines, the head of ASEAN's rotational chairmanship, on the last leg of his Asia trip.

ASEAN is an annual summit of Southeast Asian nations which include the U.S., China, and other major global powers.

The summit opened Monday, under extra-tight security at a theater and convention complex by Manila Bay.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte hosted a gala dinner for world leaders including Trump, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who all wore traditional barong shirts.
