Barack Obama has cancelled a meeting with the president of the Philippines after Rodrigo Duterte appeared to call him a “son of a who*e”.

The move followed a warning from Duterte to the US president to keep off the subject of extrajudicial killings in his country’s brutal drug war when they were due to meet on Tuesday at a regional summit in Laos. Duterte told a press conference that Obama “must be respectful”.

The firebrand president was answering a reporter’s question about how he intended to explain the extrajudicial killings to Obama, before boarding a plane to Laos for the Association of South-east Asian Nations summit.

“You must be respectful. Do not just throw away questions and statements. Son of a *****, I will curse you in that forum,” Duterte was quoted by as saying by Agence-France Presse. “We will be wallowing in the mud like pigs if you do that to me.”

When his comments reached the Obama camp, the US president initially said he was asking his staff to find out whether holding the meeting as scheduled would be useful.

“Obviously the Filipino people are some of our closest friends and allies and the Philippines is a treaty ally of ours. But I always want to make sure that if I’m having a meeting that it’s actually productive and we’re getting something done.”

But hours later the decision was made to cancel, a White House spokesman said. Instead, Obama will meet with South Korean president Park Geun-hye.

Duterte has faced condemnation from human rights campaigners, diplomats and the UN for inciting a war on drugs that, according to official figures published on Sunday, has led to 2,400 deaths in just two months.

Obama joins a long list of people whose mothers’ purity have been called into question by Duterte, including Pope Francis, Filipino bishops and a murdered journalist , as well as the drugs traffickers who are the main targets of his domestic law and order policies.

The defiant Filipino leader has responded to critics with a string of outbursts, including labelling the US ambassador to Manila a “gay son of a who*e” , telling the Catholic church “don’t f**k with me” , and accusing the UN of issuing “****ting” statements about his anti-drugs policies.

Asked about the possible consequences of his comments, he said: “What is ... repercussions? I don’t give a **** to them.”

That trend might catch on, then what, vacation time?? Little golf perhaps??
Exiting the plane by the rear and now this, Trump might not have to advance an implosion, the global community will already have one in place.
This should be a page out of the Harper Method of Foreign Diplomacy.

I know I will get hammered for saying this, it's not politically correct, but is a sad fact; many people of the world do not like black people.
I know that the majority of Asians don't, many Europeans and even 'black' countries don't like other blacks. (Examples: Bermudans don't like Jamaicans, Trinidadians have three classes of people and negro blacks are the lowest class. And how many blacks do you see living in the Mid-east?


I say this from my experience working with people of all races and nationalities over a 40 year working span. It is what I have seen and heard from people. Many new immigrants were amazed by how tolerant and accepting Canadians are


With the American election looming, they are really promoting blacks. You see them in practically all commercials now, at least half of the political interviewees are black and they have even revived the movie, 'The Color Purple'.
America does itself no good globally by setting the black population up as somehow 'special' and different. They would be better received on the world stage if they promoted the idea that all Americans are AMERICAN.


I expect with Obamas presidency coming to an end soon, some countries feel no need to pay him any respect.

Except, this brain dead idiot doesn't reserve his "son of a *****" label for just "blacks"

Yes, we're sure Duterte also called Pope Francis a "son of a wh*re" because he's black.

Your undersheet is showing.

I actually thought about pointing out all the flaws in your post, but really, what's the point? You are a flat-out racist, and you think it's a virtue. C'est la vie.

I just hope you're not in a position to turn your racism into discrimination in a way that directly harms others.

How very wise you are to know what I think! Do you have a degree in long distance mind-reading>
Nowhere in my post did I say how I felt or what I thought about other races. I stated what my observations have been of what others have demonstrated.
I will ask again, do you dispute what I have said and if so, by what reasoning?

Not wise, just experienced.

The metadata say it all.

For starters, it relies on wildly overbroad generalizations.

Plans for joint US-Philippines patrols and naval exercises in the disputed South China Sea have been put on hold, and 107 US troops operating drones surveilling Muslim militants will also have to leave the country soon, the Philippines Defense chief said.

President Rodrigo Duterte said he wants an ongoing US-Philippine amphibious beach landing drill to be the last in his six-year presidency, with plans to halt all the 28 military exercises carried out with US forces every year.

“This year would be the last,” Duterte pledged on Friday in Davao in the southern Philippines.

“For as long as I am there, do not treat us like a doormat because you’ll be sorry for it,” he added. “I will not speak with you. I can always go to China.”

Earlier this week, the outspoken Philippines leader said his US counterpart Barack Obama, whom he has previously publicly called a “son-of-a-b***h,” should “go to hell.”

Asked to comment on the possibility that the current joint maneuvers will be the last, Major Roger Hollenbeck, a US military spokesman for the drills, gave a fatalistic response: “If it’s the last, so be it.”

“I have nothing to do with that and we are going to continue to work together; we’ve got a great relationship,” he added.

Experts say the Philippines president’s plans to limit the presence of US troops will thwart Washington’s intention to beef up US forces in Southeast Asia in order to counter China.

“President Duterte’s shoot-from-the-hip style of parochial democracy is deeply troubling,” Carl Thayer, an expert on the South China Sea, told AP. “If Duterte moves to curtail US rotational military presence from bases in the Philippines, this would undermine the US ability to deter China not only in defense of Philippines sovereignty, but regional security as well.”

Lorenzana told a foreign correspondents’ forum on Friday that Manila should probably “re-assess” its relationship with the US and the benefits of the alliance, asserting that the country’s military would survive even if Washington were to withdraw its aid completely.

“We can live without (that),” Lorenzana said, Reuters reported. The value of US military aid to Manila is “not that much,” the country’s Defense chief added, insisting that military officials could ask the Philippines Congress to make up for a $50-$100 million shortfall a year in aid from Washington.

The Philippines is a crucial American ally in South East Asia, serving as a guard against Chinese influence. However, relations between the two countries have deteriorated under Duterte, who has bristled under international criticism over his large-scale anti-drug campaign.

The strain in US-Philippines relations has called into question the Obama administration’s planned ‘pivot to Asia,’ as Duterte has threatened to leave the UN completely and form a rival organization with China and other countries. China and the Philippines also have a tense relationship due to disagreements on sovereignty over parts of the South China Sea.
