WATCH: U.S President Obama Respond ToPresident Duterte: "He's a colorful guy"

September 8, 2016 | Thursday

Asked to respond during a news conference after the Group of 20 summit in China, Obama said earlier Monday that he had been told of Duterte's comment, but he shrugged it off as another in a line of "colorful statements" from Duterte.

"Clearly, he's a colorful guy," Obama said. The president added that he had asked his staffers to speak with their Philippine counterparts to "make sure if I'm having a meeting, it's productive and we're getting something done." Obama called the Philippines a close "friend and ally" of the United States.
