With Donald Trump winning an historic election for President, foreign leaders are lining up to send their congratulations and pledges to work together.
Rodrigo Duterte, President of the Phillippines often called the “Asian Trump” has made his thoughts on the election known. Remember Duterte famously told Obama to “go to hell” for trying to interfere in his nation’s business.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has congratulated Donald Trump on his shock election win, saying the reality TV star can help enhance relations with the Asian country.
Duterte, who infamously told President Obama to ‘go to Hell’ last month, has often expressed his outrage with his administration.
Having repeatedly threatened to end his nation’s alliance with Washington, he is said to be ‘looking forward to working with the incoming administration’.
Donald Trump will have to start repairing many of the international relationships damaged under the Obama administration. Duterte may be a bit controversial, but the Philippines is a big ally in the South Asia war against Islamic terrorism.
