President Rodrigo Duterte admits dealing with former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has been “hard.”
Duterte issued this remark during a farewell dinner for outgoing House Speaker Arroyo held at the Manila Hotel Tuesday evening.

Duterte, who served as the peace and order advisor of then-President Arroyo, recalled the Pampanga congresswoman calling him “in the wee hours of the morning just to listen to me and to seek my advice.”
“I was there when you made the decision, one major crucial. And since you did not follow me, I said…” the Chief Executive said before he shifted to another topic.
