Protesters in Manila burned a 13-foot effigy of President Trump twisted in the shape of a swastika during his visit Sunday to the Philippines.

The effigy was created by artist group Ugat Lahi and was front and center at a rally during Trump’s meeting with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations. Others carried signs that read “Dump Trump” and “Down with US Imperialism.”

Trump arrived Sunday in the Philippines, the last stop on his trip to Asia. He was friendly with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, praising their “great relationship.”

Duterte has faced human rights abuse accusations as he pushes a drug crackdown in the country.
