Duterte have been getting the attention of the International stage since he stepped into office. Following the increasing death toll on his ongoing war against illegal drugs and criminality, many human rights advocates from the United Nations, United Statesand European Union called out the President on alleged extrajudicial killings which have been taking place.
However, Duterte remained unfazed by these issues and pursue with his self-deadlined promised of eradicating the country's problems linked to illegal drugs. He showed other countries his tougher position in being accountable to the Filipino people not to anyone and have made harsh pronouncements against them.
But amid everything, an American netizen made rounds online as he complimentedPresident Rodrigo Duterte. Seen to be wearing a baller with Duterte's name, took the internet by storm and was lauded by many Duterte supporter. It was netizen Ian Lapayo who uploaded the picture. He also shared their short conversation in the caption which goes:
"Yesterday, as we were riding a Ceres Bus #8410 bound for Cebu, City, I noticed this gentleman is wearing a "DUTERTE" baller. Out of my curiousity, I asked him why he's wearing that and where did he got that baller (kapal muks! hahaha). He just replied, "I didn't see this guy personally (referring to Pres. Duterte) but I knew him through world news and social media, and I find him really great as a president in your country. We, Americans, are hoping to have this kind of leader in our country who is very straight forward and a love to his country. You are so lucky to have Duterte as your president. So just take care of him by showing your support and love to him."
I just smiled at him and at the back of my mind, "WOW! Buti pa ibang lahi, na appreciate nila presidente natin, ang iba jan kung maka bash, WAGAS!" [source]
