President Duterte and US President-elect Donald Trump finally speak
Trump won over Hilary Clinton in the recent US Presidential election last November 8, 2016 - an event that many describe as one of the biggest upsets in the American history.
Duterte earlier aimed to liberate the Philippines from the influence of the US and put the interest of the Philippines above anyone else.
Duterte softened his stance towards the US after Trump won the election.
“Ayaw kong makipag-away kasi nandyan na si Trump. I would like to congratulate President Trump. Mabuhay ka!” Duterte said in a speech before the Filipino community in Malaysia.
“Pareho tayo nagmumura. Konting rason lang, mura kaagad. Medyo pare-pareho kami."
"I remember Trump in the middle of one of his statements, he said 'I will not talk like this after I become president'," Locsin said on TV. "I remember someone who also said the same thing."
Do you think this is a good sign?
