US ‘lousy’, says Duterte
PHILIPPINE President Rodrigo Duterte, previously praised and invited by US President Donald Trump to come to the White House, said he won’t visit the US during or after his term because the country is “lousy”.
Duterte’s remarks about one of the Philippines’s oldest allies was in response to Democratic congressman James McGovern, who said he would protest if the Filipino leader took up Trump’s invitation.
“There will never be a time that I will go to America during my term, or even thereafter. So what makes that guy think I’ll go to America? I’ve seen America and it’s lousy,” Duterte said. Washington Post
