Archbishop Ramon Arguelles Praise Duterte 'He wants to improve the lives of the poor and I want him to continue doing that'
Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles is a member of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP).
When asked about President Duterte he said, “I think he is doing well. Although sometimes he has a way with words and he is very loud… you can see that he has an objective,”
“That was his promise. Is there rape now that are drug-related? Maybe there still are but not that many unlike before. Do you feel more safe now when you walk in the street or do you feel safer before?”
Although the bishop said he does not favor Duterte, he acknowledges the president’s good intentions to the poor.
“He wants to improve the lives of the poor and I want him to continue doing that.” [source]
