Duterte promised to stop cussing He said God talked to him on the plane on his way home
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said he has made a vow to God to quit cussing in his addresses.
After touching base in Davao City after his three-day official visit to Japan, Duterte shared a snapshot of epiphany amid his flight.
"I was looking at the skies as I was coming over here. And I... everybody was asleep snoring. A voice said that you know 'If you don't stop (inaudible), I will bring this plane down now.' And I said, who is this? Of course, it's God. Oh, OK. So, I promised God not to express slang, cuss words," he said.
"You guys hear me right always because a promise to God is a promise to the Filipino people," he added.
