AP: Philippine leader Duterte says God told him to stop cursing
President Rodrigo Duterte’s profanities have become a trademark of his political persona, especially when threatening to kill drugs dealers as part of his war on illegal drugs that has left thousands dead since he took office at the end of June.
Duterte made the stunning pledge on arrival in in his southern hometown of Davao city late Thursday from a trip to Japan.
He said that while flying home, he was looking at the sky while everyone was sound asleep and he heard a voice that said “‘if you don’t stop epithets, I will bring this plane down now.”
“And I said, ‘Who is this?’ So, of course, ‘it’s God,'” he said.
