President Obama found an international leader that he actually won’t bow down to.
Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte isn’t a fan of Barack Obama. Prior to a scheduled meeting with the US President, Duterte called Obama a “son of a bitch.”
Duterte has cracked down on the drug trade in his country and this has resulted in bloodshed. Obama has spoken out against this because he is concerned about due process. Obama promised to bring up this crack down at his meeting with the Filipino president.
Duterte had strong language when he learned of Obama’s intentions for their meeting. He fired off some swear words at the US President and told him to mind his own business as you can see in the video below.
Obama reacted by cancelling the meeting. Most international leaders don’t attack President Obama since he routinely bows to them. But, Duterte is a colorful character who says what is on his mind. And apparently, calling Obama a “son of a bitch” crossed the line.
Obama hasn’t been a strong leader so we shouldn’t be surprised when leaders of other nations disparage him. It’s awful to see our Commander in Chief in such a weak position! This isn’t how Donald Trump will lead!
Please share this if you are looking forward to having a strong leader in the White House again!
