MUST WATCH: Obama disagree ABS-CBN's claim that no handshake occurred between him and Duterte
I did shake hands with President Duterte last night. It was not a long interaction, and I indicated to him that my team should be meeting with his and determine how to move forward the whole range of issues.
In addition, Obama told reporters when prompted to comment on the Duterte cursing that he did not take it personally because it is a phrase Duterte used repeatedly in the past.
I don’t take these comments personally because it seems this is a phrase he used repeatedly including, directed at the Pope and others, so I think this seems to be just a habit, a way of speaking for him. Netizens condemn ABS-CBN News for the erroneous article.

Ngayon ko naisip kung bakit ipinasara ni Marcos ang abs noon…ang akala nmn ng marami noon dahil talagang naninindigan ito sa katwiran at may prinsipyong pinaglalaban yun pala nmn khit walang kwenta nire report at pinalalaki.. dapat lang pala na ipasara ito. nabuhay lng nmn ang abs noong si aquino na umupo…bk nmn ngkahiyaan lang o kya d tlga nkmayan pero d nmn nag aaway. masyadong bisi c obama pra sa ganitong kababawan….

Contradicting reports. Umagang Kay Ganda just reported na nagkausap at nagkamay si Duterte at Obama. Yet, here you report na parang inisnab ni Obama si Duterte? Nagsalita pa nga si Obama na ok lang sa kanya yung pananalita ni Duterte. Pinag-aaway nyo talaga amg dalawang pangulo. Dapat sa inyo, isara na uli eh.
