Duterte invited anew to visit US


Manila - President Rodrigo Duterte, who is likened to United States (US) President Donald Trump, is once again invited to visit Washington, Malacañang said on Friday, March 1.

Presidenti­al Spokespers­on Salvador Panelo said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saw similariti­es between Trump and Duterte.

Pompeo, who paid a courtesy call on Duterte on Thursday, February 28, told the Chief Executive about his same "style" and "controvers­ial" acts with Trump.

"He (Pompeo) is very fond of the President. I remember when the President was talking about what he is doing for the country, pati 'yung mga controvers­ial na galaw niya, pati 'yung cursing niya (including his controvers­ial acts and cursing), the Secretary of State said, 'You're just like our President,'" Panelo told Palace reporters.
