‘I received an invitation to the US. Will I go? No,’ Philippine’s Duterte tells RT

Filipino president Rodrigo Duterte told RT in an exclusive interview that he has no plans to visit the US for the ASEAN summit, having already snubbed one invitation over a clash of words with Obama.

The Filipino leader told RT’s Murad Gazdiev that he’s never been to the United State, even though he once received an offer from Obama to come to Washington. He said he turned down the invitation after being criticized by the Democratic president during a press conference.
