"Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte declared Thursday that he's breaking from the United States, saying that he is strengthening ties with China and that America 'lost.' 'I announce my separation from the United States,' said Duterte in Beijing, where he's meeting with business leaders and elected official[s]. 'I have separated from them. So I will be dependent on you for all time. But do not worry. We will also help as you help us.' China and the Philippines will sign $13.5 billion in deals this week and the two sides agreed to resume a dialogue on their dispute over the South China Sea, officials also said Thursday."
