As the results of the US presidential elections showed a likely win by Democrat Joe Biden against the incumbent Donald Trump, Senate President Tito Sotto on Thursday said he hoped the winner would not repeat former President Barack Obama’s foreign policy in the Asia Pacific region.

“Pinabayaan tayo ni Obama sa WPS (West Philippine Sea) issue,” the senator said in a text message to reporters.

“I hope the winner does not follow his thinking,” Sotto said.

Biden was Obama’s Vice President. Obama had angered President Rodrigo Duterte for his criticisms about human rights violations in the Philippines.

In a recent Kapihan sa Manila Bay forum, Sotto hinted that he preferred the Republican Trump against his Democrat rival since he was a conservative.

On calls to renegotiate the Visiting Forces Agreement with the US, the Senate leader said there might not be need for that.

“We might not need to do so, we can simply come to some agreements on amendments,” Sotto saidd.

“Example: a provision on automatic US defense posture on any aggression against the PH,” he said.
