President Rodrigo Duterte will not change anything about himself— even his tendency to curse—despite calls for him to act more statesmanlike.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News’ Lynda Jumilla Thursday (Dec.29), Duterte noted that he never experienced a loss in his long political career despite his personality.
“Why should I change? God made me the way I am. God gave me this identity. And God gave me this mouth because when you say that we are the creations of God,” he said.
Those who don’t like him, he said, can complain to God.
“If you have something against me, about my mouth, about my character go to God and complain, huwag ako. Siya ang may gawa. He is the one to be blamed not me,” he said.
Duterte previously said he does not see the need to act more statesmanlike since he did not obtain that degree in school.
