One year later: For Trump, the 2016 election is ever-present

  One year later: For Trump, the 2016 election is ever-present Donald Trump handily won the election a year ago Wednesday. Ask him and he'll tell you about it. Ten months into his presidency, Trump is still focused — some say fixated — on the election that catapulted him to power. Egged on by longtime friends and cable news, he repeatedly attacks his vanquished opponent, Democrat Hillary Clinton. In public and in private, he still boasts of the size of his victory."It was great victory, and a victory that made a lot of people very happy," Trump said Tuesday in Seoul, South Korea, his second stop on a five-country visit to Asia.

The Philippines and the United States signed a mutual defence treaty in 1951 pledging to help each other if they were attacked by an external enemy.

The nation is one of only two American defence treaty allies in Southeast Asia, along with Thailand.

US-backed dictator

Ferdinand Marcos ruled the Philippines for 20 years with US backing despite overseeing widespread rights abuses and embezzling up to $10 billion from state coffers.

The United States backed Marcos, who went from democratic hopeful to dictator, as he guaranteed strategic US bases in the Philippines and was seen as a bulwark against communism.

In 1986, a famous "People Power" uprising toppled Marcos, sending him and his family into exile in Hawaii.

Shutting bases

Nearly a century of major US military presence ended in 1992 when the Philippines closed two of America's biggest Asian bases. The Filipino Senate rejected a treaty extension following rising popular sentiment against the United States.

US - Philippine ties : A history of ' best friends ' fighting . Since Trump became US President in January, Duterte has expressed optimism he would be able to build good rapport with the American leader despite his at times brash rhetoric towards the US.

However the Philippines' maritime dispute with China over the South China Sea, and US concerns over Islamic militancy in the restive south, brought the nation back into an American embrace.

The allies signed a Visiting Forces Agreement in 1998 and a 2014 accord that led to increased defence cooperation, including more annual joint military exercises.

Duterte tirades

Duterte's election last year brought a sudden reversal of the policy of his pro-American predecessor, Benigno Aquino.

The outspoken leader launched a brutal war on drugs that was condemned by the administration of then-US President Barack Obama.

Duterte responded by announcing his "separation" from the United States, calling Obama a "son of a whore" and pursuing closer ties with China and Russia.

But Duterte, who has a reputation for unpredictability, has recently said the nations are "best of friends" again after receiving praise from Trump about the drug war.
