When President Trump called President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines on Saturday, the U. S. leader’s national security aides saw it as part of a routine diplomatic outreach to Southeast Asian leaders.
During their “very friendly conversation,” the administration said in a late-night statement, Trump invited Duterte, an authoritarian leader accused of ordering extrajudicial killings of drug suspects in the Philippines, to visit him at the White House.
 administration officials are bracing for an avalanche of criticism from human rights groups.
“By essentially endorsing Duterte’s murderous war on drugs, Trump is now morally complicit in future killings,” said John Sifton, Asia director of Human Rights Watch.
Administration officials said the call to Duterte was one of several to Southeast Asian leaders that the White House arranged after picking up signs that they felt neglected because of Trump’s intense focus on China, Japan and tensions over North Korea.

The new Mississippi Comprehensive Annual Financial Report has a chart that shows who is in charge of state government.
The report was published April 21 by the Department of Finance and Administration and is on the state auditor's website .
Mississippi tax collections have fallen short of expectations, and Republican Gov. Phil Bryant has had to make multiple rounds of budget cuts since the middle of FY16.
The report notes, on page 22, that money collected to support the general fund — the biggest state-funded part of the budget — fell $145.7 million short of predictions for the year.
Sales tax collections grew by $27.8 million, or 1.4 percent, and individual income tax collections grew by $26 million, or 1.5 percent, in FY16 compared to the previous year.
 collections from corporate income tax and franchise tax decreased by $117.8 million, or 16.5 percent.
The statistics about population, income and education are valuable to lawmakers and public policy planners.

 Gov. John Bel Edwards' tax on business sales was killed without a single legislative vote, a blow to the Democratic governor's push to revamp the state tax structure and end boom-and-bust cycles of budget instability.
The concept was a last-minute introduction into the tax debate that never gained a bit of traction in the Legislature and that wasn't endorsed by a task force formed to recommend the best ways to rewrite Louisiana's tax laws.
The plan would keep agencies largely at the same level of state financing they received this year, with some mandatory spending increases funded.
Havard's bill, up for debate Monday, would enact a new business tax for larger companies that file their taxes through the state's corporate income and franchise tax laws.
Companies would be unable to take advantage of loopholes that let them shift losses around to lower their Louisiana tax payments and instead, the state would calculate a tax off a business' federal taxable income.
Another idea up for discussion is Edwards' proposal to extend sales taxes to services, such as digital streaming services, cable television, landscaping and massages.
Other talk continues about renewing a temporary 1 percent increase in the state sales tax and the temporary removal of some sales tax breaks.
