TRUMP INVITES PHILIPPINE PRES. RODRIGO DUTERTE TO WHITE HOUSE

Posted on

( CBS) President Trump has invited Rodrigo Duterte, the president of the Philippines, to the White House after a “very friendly” phone conversation, the White House said in a statement Saturday.

Mr. Trump and Duterte will “discuss the importance of the United States-Philippines alliance, which is now heading in a very positive direction,” the White House said.

As recently as December, Duterte threatened to end his country’s relationship with the U.S. when he believed the U.S. had ended aid over human rights concerns. “We can survive without American money,” he said.

Duterte publicly sparred with former President Obama by using curses and racial epithets to describe him. Duterte has also cursed Pope Francis and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
