Lodi! Duterte wants to ‘walk the talk’ like Trump
United States President Donald Trump has joined President Rodrigo Duterte’s growing list of world leaders worth looking up to.
Duterte on Tuesday (September 4) called Trump his “idol” in front of Israeli businessmen in Jerusalem.
“Trump is my idol. Why? Because he walks the talks. When he says that I will do this, even how — he does not care. So that’s the kind of thing that I also want,” he said.
Like Trump, he said he also does not care about what others would think as long as he’s convinced his actions would improve Filipinos’ welfare.
“It has no personal agenda, it has nothing there except that the greater interest of the nation says that we have to be here,” he said.
Aside from Trump, the other world leaders whom Duterte called his idols were Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.
