Rody: No trips to 'lousy' America

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, previously praised and invited by President Donald Trump to come to the White House, said he won't visit the United States during or after his term because the country is "lousy".

Duterte asked, "What makes that guy think I'm going to America?"

Duterte said the American lawmakers should instead focus on the supposed human rights abuses in the U.S. rather than intervene in the Philippines' internal affairs.

This came after a bipartisan caucus in the US House of Representatives conducted a hearing on the "human rights outcome of the "war on drugs" now underway in the Philippines".

"There will never be a time that I will go to America during my term or even thereafter... I've seen America and it's lousy", Duterte told reporters Friday about McGovern.

Local and worldwide media, as well as human rights groups, have continuously cited at least 7,000 deaths due to the drug war since July 1, 2016. "No arrest. No warrant".

Rights groups have warned that Duterte and the police may be overseeing a crime against humanity.
