Watch the entire speech of President Rodrigo Duterte announcing his "separation" of ties with the United States during a state visit to Beijing, China.

"I announce my separation from the United States," he said to applause at a meeting in the Chinese capital.

"America does not control our lives. Enough b****," he added in a rambling speech that flipped between languages.

"How can you be the most powerful industrial country when you owe China and you are not paying it?"
