Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte is under fire today as his comments have caused a firestorm in the political world.

President Duterte referred to President Obama is a “son of a whore”, in a press conference.

The outspoken president was quick to call out President Obama’s leadership of the United States by stating that it would be “rude” of him to mention human rights during their meet up.

Obama has subsequently taken time away from the golf course and managed to quietly cancel his meeting with President Duterte in light of his recent comments.

Reflecting on his somewhat appropriate comments, Duterte has stated that he now “expresses regret” in what he has said of Obama.
