The president slams both local and international media for twisting his words regarding his statement on Obama.

President Rodrigo Duterte finally spoke up regarding his so-called swearing to President Barack Obama which resulted to the latter's faction to cancel their supposed to be meeting during the ASEAN-US summit in Laos.

Duterte asserted that he did not curse Obama and that the media only twisted his words for sensationalism to ruin his reputation.

"Hindi ko sinabing p********. May sinabi ako, pero not in relation to Obama," the president clarified.

He stated that the statement was not solely towards Obama as he was only frustrated with the inappropriate inquiry of the media.

"You can write an article about the President of the Republic of the Philippines being put  na talagang pinatay ko lahat, 'di ako sasagot sa iyo, wala akong pakialam. Who are you to ask me such thing?" Duterte responded to the media's question.

He also called on the American media for putting him in a bad light, sarcastically saying that they are really good in creating stories.

"Itong Amerikano, mahusay talaga. Americans can spin a story. They use a predicate or adjective that is worst to hear," Duterte said.

"When they are after you, they make it appear to be the worst of you. Kaya ako, bantay sa press. They can spin everything," he added.

"I am the President of the Republic of the Philippines, not the Republic of the International Community. You can all go to hell. I will do what I think is best for my country for the best interest of the Philippines," the president also stated.
