YES, you read that right and yes, you guessed it right. The person spoken about is none other than the irresponsible president of Philippines – Mr RODRIGO DUTERTE.
THE STORY AS IT HAPPENED
Philippines is a country which is predominantly dependent on other countries for its revenue. It is a country which is on the list of travelers worldwide and now also a BPO (Business Processing Outsourcing) Hub. Companies from across the globe look up to Philippines for their business expansion and the government policies support global investments. Considering all the above mentioned factors, it proves that Philippines is dependent on countries all over the world for its revenue. Local Filipino people are dependent on the global investors for their jobs. And jobs which cater to tourism is again possible only if there are tourists visiting Philippines. With the stakes so high on being dependent, A careless statement did not go down well with the global investors. Philippines president stated that the most powerful and influential political leader across the globe, the USA president Mr BARACK OBAMA as a ‘SON OF A WHORE’.
A man who has a history of incidents and controversies relating to his foul mouth is still at the helm of his country’s political plans. This latest statement made by him about Mr Obama was at the recently concluded G-20 summit in Hangzhou, China.
With such an irresponsible statement made, investors are now hesitant to make their investments in Philippines. On the following day of this statement made, the markets in Philippines opened to a record new low. They are themselves to blame for this mess. The impact of this statement has just started and with huge market losses and with a vast number of tourists pulling out of Philippines the road to recovery looks bleak and tough.
There have been many attempts made to apologise and to correct what has been said but to no avail. The least that anyone expects is respect, irrespective of position, class, society and country. Insulting the president of a country is disrespecting and insulting the entire nation as the president of a country is just its people’s representative.
Philippines is definitely in store for more action by companies and tourists all over the world. The stock markets have not recovered and the signs of recovery are also not positive. People have been losing their jobs and daily living is also going to get tough. So brace up Philippines you are in store for more. A foul mouthed president who needs to mend his ways is the sole reason why common man of a beautiful country has started to suffer.
DEFINITELY NO ONE IN THE WORLD WILL WANT TO MESS WITH USA!!!
