DESPITE President Rodrigo Duterte’s tirades against the United States, majority of Filipinos still trust the global superpower and its leading ally Japan, while having the opposite view toward China and Russia, according to a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey.

The poll, conducted from December 6 to 11, showed that the country’s long-time allies, the US and Japan, scored high trust ratings of 76 percent and 70 percent, respectively, among 1,200 respondents.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe arrived in Manila on Thursday afternoon for a two-day visit, meeting with President Duterte in Malacañang.

The survey showed that 61 percent of Filipinos distrust China and 58 percent feel the same way toward Russia, amid Duterte’s efforts to forge closer relations with Beijing and Moscow.

At the same time, 55 percent of Filipinos distrust Great Britain, while 50 percent trust the European Union.
Filipinos trust UN

The same survey also showed that 74 percent of Filipinos trust the United Nations, which Duterte has slammed for its supposed hypocrisy over human rights.

The survey had a ±3 percent error margin at the 95 percent confidence level.

The poll results come as Duterte forges an independent foreign policy that rejects “subservience” to the US, and seeks “non-traditional” partners.

In his speech during Wednesday’s Vin d’Honneur in the Palace, the President said his administration would nurture “existing friendships” even as it pursues new ties with other countries.

“We value partners as we seek strengthened existing friendships even as we pursue new ones. We believe that friends help each other and utilize constructive engagement to achieve common goals. In truth, we all share the same aspiration of greater peace, progress, and prosperity,” Duterte told diplomats in Malacañang.

  1. The survey showed that 61 percent of Filipinos distrust China and 58 percent feel the same way toward Russia, amid Duterte’s efforts to forge closer relations with Beijing and Moscow.

    Filipinos trust UN

    The servants of darkness strike again! I could see the mind of the Devil here : the survey said that a high 74% trust the UN. Where is the 91% initial trust rating of the president ?

    91% trust the president , therefore these are the same number who slammed the UN because they support their president. This is what I have been telling everyone that poll surveys are favourite menus of the devils. By it they can “increase and decrease” the president as shown by the wily statements above.

    These poll results are bent on destroying the president through “increase and decrease” , conjuring up much of Satan’s wonderful scheme of deception—the tree of knowledge of good and evil. This is a destructive wisdom of the evil devil which the whole world is utilizing but certainly oblivious of its presence. It is the wisdom of the whole world and it is testified through John , ” we know that we are from God , and the whole world lies under the power of the evil one”. 1 John 5:19…

    And because the whole world is under the power of the evil one , this is the same kind of wisdom that they employ in these surveys so as to bring down the president.

    They increase the number of Filipinos who trust the UN , and in so doing they were able to decrease or bring down the president because he has slammed the UN , that means if 74 % trust the UN , then its reverse statement , though hidden is provocatively implied : 74 % distrust the president.

    Further the poll results said : 61 % distrust China , so it goes without even pointing out that 61% distrust the president because he favours China. They say 58% feel the same way to Russia , so to drive home the point that 58% feel the same way against the president.

    Further still , they say that 55% distrust the Great Britain , again that is 55% distrust for the president , and finally the last but not the least.

    They say that 50% distrust the European Union , here the president has been reduced to half . That means he is now 50-50 or in a near death status.

    Can you see now how the devils or the demons wonderfully work their way to destroy a good man? By using these poll surveys , they can manage to cut a man in halves! This is a mind conditioning effort being done by the forces of darkness! They systematically and methodically slicing the president and turning him into shreds!

    • ERRATUM
      They say that 50% distrust the European Union , here the president has been reduced to half . That means he is now 50-50 or in a near death status.

      The word “distrust” should have been typed as “trust”. So the correct statement should be what was written in the news—50 percent trust the European Union.
      Thank you…

  2. It makes sense to figure out that before the Filipinos elected DU30 those Filipino voters did not even have a clue that the policies of DU 30 will be on the side of China and Russia, the favorites of DU30. The situation becomes complicated now for the Philippines that Obama is gone and Trump will be the leader of the Free World. China and Russia are not members of the Free World. Trump doesn’t give a sh.t about any country opposing him. His focus is America first. During the last 8 years America lost the respect of most nations, especially the U.S. adversaries. As a part of America to be Great Again, Trump will reverse that. Let us see what will happen to the Philippines, say 2 years down the road? Will there be repercussions on DU30′ regime? As a Fil-Am I love the Philippines and the United States, not Russia and China. China is a cheater and a violator of international laws. Russia just conquered Ukraine. Russia can not be trusted. First and foremost, the serious problem now is feeble minded North Korea, an ally of crazy Iran! The next problem of the US is the illegally occupied islets in the South China sea, especially near the Philippines. The Filipinos should ask themselves: Do you think China would abuse that China sea if the anti-American Filipino politicians did not scrub the American military bases in the Philippines? Ask the Filipinos if they prefer that the Philippines be one of the States of the United States and you will hear the sounding “YES”. Quezon and his power greedy cohort co-politicians made a big mistake. The Philippines now could be one of the beautiful States of America, surpassing Hawaii, a Commonwealth of the Philippines, like Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

  3. I do not trust the US , back in my elementary days we were taught that the americans are the greatest champion of democracy , and now I came to realised that the mother of liberal democracy is also the US. Look at how liberal they have become—they approved of same sex marriages , man to man and woman to woman. Too liberal a democracy breeds immorality!

    They have forgotten that this is the foremost reason why Sodom and Gomorrah were burned by The Lord to annihilate them.
    And to think that America is the largest donor of free bibles in the whole world—they are gradually transforming themselves into a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah.

    Their concept of liberal democracy has been transforming them into a demonic state. No wonder they are the source or creators of such crimes as WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION which they had used to bring to shambles a once progressive nation in the Middle East.

    Their penchant for demonic crime continues unabated and they invented yet another monster in the now infamous , EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLING. This latter creation is much more potent of an instrument of great destruction than the former. So dangerous it is , that even if a leader is yet to be born , he already has inherited a crime.

    This newly-created term , extra-judicial killing , a misnomer actually , was forged into the name of the government and made to appear forcibly as government property. So even before a leader assumes leadership , he already committed a crime not of his own doing because its definition came ahead of him.

    And hear what they say : extra-judicial killing is the killing of a person by governmental authorities without the sanction of any judicial proceeding or legal process. So the conviction and judgement came very much ahead of the president.

    Even in creating a name for a crime , they are too liberal as to think the downfall of others.
    Satan , the Devil and the ancient serpent is similarly minded—he always conceive schemes to cause the downfall of men especially the good ones.
    Most Pinoys voted for the US ? I don’t think so!
    Poll surveys are the favourite menus of the devils because they provided them the tool for “increase and decrease” which is characteristically satanic.

  4. Lito, lets make things simple, the problem is within us, If we want to solve this problem of making our country great, we can do it. All we need is the determination to do it. We know what the problems are so we can fix it.so, to cut the bull,we need a think tank composed of smart Filipinos. With the major role of the Executive branch, to execute the needed solutions to our problems. It may not be easy but we got to do it. The task will not happen overnight, it might take years, a term of a president.

  5. The survey results are not surprising considering democratic values are deeply rooted in our institutions. The 1896 revolution was fought against social injustices, corruption and freedom under a truly Democratic Philippine Republic.
    So I submit that our country can never be a dictated state.
    While it is true that we do not object of leftist being appointed in the government, it is also true that we object to any
    ideological intentions by the left but rather participate in the democratic process to make the difference in improving the lives of every Filipinos.
    The magnitude of public resources are concentrated in their hands by controlling cabinet positions. So whether some would think that the left have not given something to the peace process, by appointing them is peace by itself cause they will be reoriented how to participate in democratic process and prove their skills in government.
