A U.S Army Veteran turned vlogger told his subscribers on what he’s thinking about the controversial Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte.
In his vlog uploaded on April 5, 2019, on Youtube, Coffee with the Goose! listed some of the things which he believes the reason why the people still love Duterte despite his controversial statements.
“He is not a politician a lot like Donald Trump. He tells it like it is. He doesn’t just speak in sweet platitudes and (doesn’t) tell you things that you want to hear. That’s not how he operates. He sees things as they are and he goes from there,” he said.
Despite supporting human rights, Goose said that the 5,100 users and pushers who lose their lives because of the policies of the current administration are nothing compared to the innocent civilians who got victimized by the said lawbreakers.
He also agrees with the criticisms made by the President against the Catholic Church.
“Duterte is correct. The Catholic church needs to clean its house. We have serious problems with the Catholic church for years,” he said.
Goose also pointed out that the Filipinos really love their President because of his high approval rating despite the daily criticisms he receives from the opposition.
“It’s working. And his approval ratings are through the roof, like 80 plus percent. So, people of the Philippines, for the most part, love Duterte. He is getting the job done and he loves his country,” Goose remarked.
After studying the President, Goose concluded that Duterte got personalities fit for a strong leader.
“He’s forceful, strong and honest. Now whether you think he’s intelligent, well-read, you know he’s not the smartest guy in the world but who among us are? He’s honest, I think his heart is in the right place,” he said.
“Duterte is the real deal,” he added.
