President Rodrigo Duterte expresses his frustration with both local and international media after what seemed like a clear sabotage of the country's diplomatic relation with US as the media reported that he cursed Obama and called him "son of a [expletive]".
Out of frustration, Duterte claimed that the media had spinned stories about him several times and left out signifant facts in the intention to ruin his name.
"Hindi ko sinabing [expletive]. May sinabi ako, pero not in relation to Obama," Duterte clarified.
He clarified that the answer was not directed to Obama, his answer was brought by his frustration with the media's improper question.
"You can write an article about the President of the Republic of the Philippines being put to task, but even if it is true na talagang pinatay ko lahat, [expletive] di ako sasagot sa iyo, wala akong pakialam. Who are you [to ask me such a thing?]" responding to the media's question.
He further expressed his disappointment and frustration with the American press for potraying him in a bad light, maybe even the worst.
"Itong Amerikano, mahusay talaga. Americans can spin a story. They use a predicate or adjective that is worst to hear," he said.
"When they are after you, they make it appear to be the worst of you. Kaya ako, bantay sa press. They can spin everything."
"I am the president of the Republic of the Philippines, not the Republic of the International Community. You can all go to hell. I will do what I think is best for my country for the best interest of the Philippines," he added.
