Duterte on Domagoso: ‘I’m impressed’


President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said he was impressed with Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso and his resolve to fix the capital city of the Philippines.

Bilib ako sa kanya. Mas mahusay siya sa akin. Mas mahusay ang resolve nya sa akin,” Duterte said during a media interview in Malacañang.

(I’m impressed. He is better than me. His resove is better than mine.)

Domagoso has been in the news and earning praises from government officials and diplomats for addressing Manila’s many woes immediately after he assumed his post, including clearing up streets and sidewalks in trash-laden areas like Divisoria and Quiapo. CATHERINE S. VALENTE
