How could Duterte be offended by Trudeau? He's basically the Filipino Bernie Sanders isn't he?

Geopolitics 101.

Trudeau wins by pretending he cares about EJK
Duterte wins by pretending to be mad at a nosy foreigner

Trudeau wins in the world stage and Duterte wins in the Philippines. ASEAN is doing great. Canada and Philippines will be business as usual.

Duterte was offended because Trudeau brings up the Philippine's record on human rights. Duterte should have shot back about Canada's record on native Indians.
It's like being invited into someone's house and then criticizing them on their house keeping. Trudeau is so out of his league on the world stage.

I dont know what you are talking about. Trudeau is liked by filipinos. He is like a celebrity there. The news about bringing more immigrants in Canada is known in the Philippines.
This little "beef" they have is to give media some news. Its nothing serious. This is the difference between western media and others. Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy

US and Canada are bolstering their relationship with ASEAN countries. Everyone looked good. Even Trump. He was well behaved.

The president of Philippines had made clear he's no fan of Justin Trudeau, telling a crowd he felt personally insulted after the Canadian prime minister raised human-rights concerns and the bloody drug war in the southeast Asian country.

Human rights activists have urged President Rodrigo Duterte to end his crusade against alleged drug dealers and addicts that groups say has left at least 7,000 dead.

Duterte has said all such killings are legal acts of self-defence by police — or have been carried out by "vigilantes" with no ties to the president — and he has vowed to continue the anti-drug campaign until the end of his presidential term in 2022.

Duterte maintains tough police action — eliminating crime by eliminating criminals — is necessary to restore order in a country that has seen a surge in drug-related violence.

Trudeau said he told Duterte about the need for the rule of law in the Philippines and offered to help the country move forward.

"I said, 'I will not explain.' It is a personal and official insult," said the Philippines president recalling his conversation with Trudeau.

"It angers me when you are a foreigner you do not know exactly what is happening in this country. You do not investigate."

"I only answer to the Filipino. I will not answer to any other bullshit, especially foreigners. Lay off," he said.

Trudeau said Canada has "a reputation for being able to have strong and frank, sometimes firm, discussions around the rule of law and human rights with its partners.

"It's very much what people expect of Canada, and it comes as no surprise when we bring it up," he said at the final news conference of his whirlwind eight-day swing through Asia.

"The president was receptive to my comments, and it was, throughout, a cordial and positive exchange."

This is literally insane. Canada spends billions yearly on trying to improve the lives of indigenous people and is working to right historical wrongs. The Philippines is murdering children.

Duterte and his defenders should be ashamed of themselves.

Duterte is a murderer and criminal: Trudeau did the right thing by calling this murderous thug out, but if you want to bring up the fantasy of moral equivalency, here is Duterte boasting about murdering a teenager because of a look
