Who said President Rodrigo Duterte is not presidential?
I think Duterte’s demeanor, every time he makes speeches, really depend upon where he is, what the occasion is and who the audience are.
We saw how Duterte represented the country when he made his first foreign trip and attended the 2016 ASEAN summit in Laos only recently. He did not let us down. He made the country proud. He acted refined and respected worthy of a leader.
I am posting a video of another event where Duterte also showed his presidential best when he was invited to grace the Jewish event Rosh Hashanah, where he may have vented his anger against the US, the EU and the UN, but didn’t spew wantonly any expletives towards those concerned.
Duterte’s humble and gracious demeanor as he profoundly apologized to the Jewish community made him admirable and honorable.
