It was recently that Obama was humiliated by the president of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte who called him a “son of a b*tch.”
It was reported that Duterte commanded Obama to behave respectfully during the course of the recent Chinese G20 summit. If he failed to do so, Duterte said “son of a b*tch, I will swear at you in that forum.”
He was referring to a terrible violent war being waged against the drug cartels which has claimed the lives of more than 2,400 people thus far. Obama had previously commented that their meeting might be cancelled.
“What I’ve instructed my team to do is to talk to their Philippine counterparts to find out is this in fact a time when we can have constructive, productive conversations,” he said.
Obama said that Duterte has always been a “colourful leader” and assured that the United States still have a close relationship with the Philippines.
“I have seen some of those colorful statements in the past so clearly he’s a colorful guy,” Obama replied to reporters when he was asked about the comments.
