The US reminded the leaders of the invitation through a letter dated January 9.
In the letter, Trump said the summit will “provide an excellent opportunity for us to broaden and deepen our cooperation on matters of great importance to the nearly one billion people in the United States and ASEAN nations that we have the privilege to represent.”
“The American people and I hope to see you in the United States soon,” it read.


The two head of states met for the first time during the 31st ASEAN Summit in Manila in November 2017.
Should the said invitation be accepted by President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, their meeting is expected to reaffirm the longstanding alliance between the Philippines and US.
Presidential Spokesperson Panelo said it is still unclear if Duterte accepted Trump’s invitation.
