This video gained mixed reactions from the netizens. Some claims that he should not be cursing the Pope since he was in the country for a good reason.
But there are a lot of people who defended him as well saying that his anger was not directed to the Pope, but it was for the government who could not provide a better accommodation at the expense of the public people.
Duterte said that he did not intend to offend the Pope. If in any case that the Vatican was offended, he will step down and withdraw his certificate of candidacy.
