President Duterte tells media: 'I'm not your enemy'



President Rodrigo Duterte hosted a Christmas Party for the reporters, cameramen, and photographers assigned to cover the Palace.
"Never mind about our relations. It’s always adversarial…. Wala naman tayong galit. We do not fight with each other. I do not hate anybody here or else I would not be inviting you to my place," he said.

"I am not your enemy. Your quest for truth, that is your business, not mine. At the end of the day, it’s not my property. It’s just public interest," he added.

However, the President insisted that there was always another side to every story.

He also said that he would be glad to be a friend to the press.


"Your truth is not my truth and everybody’s truth… There is always two sides of the coin. My truth, your truth, and the public perception," he said.

"In the meantime, we have work to do. You have your mandate, I have my task. If we happen to meet at a corner and agree, it would be good. But if we find ourselves in disagreement, that is part of our territory," he added.
