NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – President-elect Donald Trump’s phone conversations with world leaders have created jitters among members of the diplomatic community.
Trump’s unorthodox and naive calls with, for instance, the leaders of Pakistan and Kazakhstan may have put the United States’ official position on and relationships with the two countries at risk.
Now, Trump has also called the controversial Philippines president, Rodrigo Roa Duterte and we have a full transcript of their conversation:
TRUMP: Good afternoon Mr. Doo-ter-tey.
DUTERTE: It’s Du-ter-te. And it’s 3 a.m. here in the Philippines.
TRUMP: Well, I never apologize, so I’m not going to say, “I’m sorry.”
DUTERTE: You just did, you son of a whore.
TRUMP: Hey, hey, watch your language. I’m the president of the most powerful country in the world. Yours is just a third world country.
DUTERTE: Maybe, but I am friends with powerful countries that are your enemies, like China and Russia.
TRUMP: Well, why can’t we be friends as well. After all, people are calling you the “Trump of the Philippines.”
DUTERTE: Let me correct you, p*tang i*a mo. You’re being called the Duterte of America.
TRUMP: Wrong. But anyway, about the Miss Universe Pageant that will be held in your coountry in January…
DUTERTE: No, I am not going to invite you as our guest.
TRUMP: But I used to own the pageant, including during the two times it’s been held in Manila.
DUTERTE: Yeah right, and the ladies were complaining that you had barged into their dressing rooms while they were all naked.
TRUMP: But I didn’t do anything.
DUTERTE: You didn’t grab them by the p…
TRUMP: Of course not. I’m just all talk. I don’t walk the talk.
DUTERTE: Well, that’s the difference between the two of us. I talk a lot, but I also walk the talk.
TRUMP: Now I see why you don’t want to be called the “Trump of the Philippines.”
DUTERTE: And you should never be called the “Duterte of America.”
TRUMP: Well, it was nice talking to you, Mr. Doo-ter-tey.
DUTERTE: It’s Du-ter-te. And do me a favor, will you? Go take a walk, you son of a whore.
