President Rodrigo Duterte promised to stop cussing in his speeches after talking to God while he was flying home.
In an article written by Bernadette Parco of GMA News Online, it was disclosed that during his speech, upon arriving in Davao City after his three-day official visit to Japan, Duterte shared that God talked to him while everyone in the plane was sleeping.
“I was looking at the skies as I was coming over here. And I… everybody was asleep snoring. A voice said that you know ‘If you don’t stop, I will bring this plane down now.’ And I said, who is this? Of course, it’s God. Oh, okay. So, I promised God not to express slang, cuss words,” he said.
The president, before his people, then assured that such promise is his vow to both the Filipinos and to God, of course.
“You guys hear me right always because a promise to God is a promise to the Filipino people,” he added.
Duterte’s vow was met with applause.
He, however, cautioned: “Don’t clap too much or else this may get derailed.”
