LOOK: Can’t take his eyes off Rody: Trump waves at Duterte during APEC meeting
United States President Donald Trump appears to have been fascinated by President Rodrigo Duterte when they met each other at the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Da Nang, Vietnam.
Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go said Trump constantly glanced at Duterte in one of the APEC Summit meetings.
He even managed to snap a photo of Trump giving a shout out to Duterte.
“Kinawayan ako ni Trump [noong] una then sabi ko kay boss nakatingin sa atin,” Go told reporters Saturday (November 11).
When Trump caught Duterte’s attention, Go said the two leaders had an exchange of good words.
At the sidelines of the APEC Summit, Trump and Duterte also had a short meeting which Malacañang described as “warm and cordial.”
Go said Trump told Duterte he will see him on Sunday (November 12) when he flies to the Philippines for the ASEAN Summit.
