Why Duterte Would Fail In A Qualification Test For A U.S. Visa

IMG_3137WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has said that he has been denied a U.S. visa in the past when he sought to visit a girlfriend in America.

Now that he’s president, it would be very easy for him to secure a U.S. visa, right? Wrong! Not with Donald Trump’s proposed policy limiting legal immigration.

The Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment Act, or RAISE Act, favors people between the ages of 26 and 30 with a doctorate, high English proficiency and a job offer with a high salary.

In a simulated test (courtesy: Time magazine), one must earn a minimum of 30 points in order to qualify to apply for a U.S. visa.

Let’s see how Duterte fares in this test:

So there you have it, Duterte scores a total of 15 points, not even half of the minimum required to apply for a U.S. visa.

But it doesn’t matter, Duterte thinks the U.S. is a “lousy” country anyway.
