Obama Cancels Meeting With Filipino President

Politico reports:

President Barack Obama will no longer meet with Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, the White House announced Monday, after Duterte’s expletive-filled rant directed at the commander-in-chief raised eyebrows worldwide.

“President Obama will not be holding a bilateral meeting with President Duterte of the Philippines this afternoon,” National Security Council spokesperson Ned Price said in a statement.

Duterte had warned Obama not to ask him about the more than 2,000 extrajudicial killings reported in his country Monday, threatening: “Son of a bitch, I will swear at you in that forum.”
