For one of those rare times, President Rodrigo Duterte follows prepared speech during his meeting with Miss Universe candidates.
After greeting his guests and the candidates of the 65th Miss Universe Beauty Pageant, President Rodrigo Duterte sticks to his prepared speech that lasted only 2 minutes and 46 seconds.
The video is 20 minutes and 33 seconds long, but Digong takes the podium at 4:17 of the video. He begins his speech at around 6:27 and ends at 9:13.
Before beginning his speech, the president joked that he has never been in a room full of beautiful women. He also said that he was told to behave and watch his language.
Right after his speech, President Duterte offered a toast to all the candidates, followed by the photo op session.
