WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – U.S. President Donald Trump has always considered President Rodrigo Duterte as his friend, often praising the latter for his “good work” on the war on drugs and extending an invitation to the Philippine leader to visit The White House.

But today, Trump told The Adobo Chronicles that he was withdrawing The White House invitation.

The reason?

Duterte was among the first of world leaders to extend their congratulations to Joe Biden for his election as the next President of the United States.

“I felt betrayed,” Trump tweeted, “I expected Duterte to stand by me till the very end. “He didn’t even give me the courtesy of waiting until I have prosecuted all my legal challenges to the fraudulent elections,” he added.
