Will President Duterte finally visit US President Donald Trump at the White House?

With the looming return of the Balangiga bells to the Philippines, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is hoping the Philippine leader will accept a long-standing invitation by Trump to visit the United States.

Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. revealed his conversation with Haley about the President’s visit depends on the return of the church bells taken by US troops as a war trophy from Eastern Samar in the 1900s.

“Nikki Haley asked me last year, Why is your president still not coming to the US? I said, He never will until the Bells of Balangiga are returned. She took note and added when we get the bells, no more excuse not to accept Trump’s invitation,” Locsin tweeted.
