Duterte is a good president, makes PH safe – Steven Seagal

Published

By Mar T. Supnad and Regina Mae Parungao

Steven Seagal, America’s famous actor, film producer and martial arts expert, said Tuesday that President Duterte is a good president and is instrumental in making the Philippines a safer place to live in.

In a press conference at The Peninsula Hotel in Makati City, Seagal said that the country is now more safe under Duterte’s leadership.

Seagal is in the country to make a series of movies on crimes, drugs, and corruption with local actors.

Asked if he feels safe in the country amid the relentless and massive campaign by the government against illegal drugs that resulted in thousands of killings, Seagal said that he feels the Philippines is not a dangerous place but is now more safe.

He cited Duterte for his initiatives in protecting the Filipino people.

He also cited the Filipino people for their hospitality, humor and friendliness, and this is why he chose to make a series of movies here.

Seagal is in the country for the production of the TV series “General Commander.” This is the third time the action star visited the Philippines.

It is said that “General Commander” will tackle corruption, crime and drugs. The actor shared he is interested in getting Filipino cast members.

Seagal is being assisted by his close friend, former Ilocos Sur governor Chavit Singson who is now the national president of the Philippine Councilors’ League, in filming the movies in various parts of the country.

Singson revealed that the American actor will also make movies in the historic city of Vigan and neighboring areas.

Seagal admitted that he is a “big fan” of President Duterte.

“I’m a big fan of the government, and I think Duterte is a very good president and he has been instrumental in making the Philippines an up and coming place,” he said in an interview.

Both Duterte and Seagal are big fans of President Vladimir Putin. Seagal, an environmentalist and animal rights activists known for his outspoken political views, was given a Russian citizenship last year for expressing support for the policies of Russia.

Seagal is best known for a string of blockbuster action movies from the late 1980s to the early 1990s. These include “Above The Law,” “Hard To Kill,” “Marked For Death,” “Out For Justice,” “Under Siege,” and “On Deadly Ground.”

    It takes a non-Filipino to praise our President. There are some of those, I say SOME, who migrated to other countries for good and even those who never ever left the Philippines for no good reason at all have enmity with our President.

    • It takes a clueless non-Filipino. Look at his interview, he’s even wearing a changpao as if he’s in china. He mulls words before giving a generic vague praise.

      Murderte’s War on the Poor is illegal & unconstitutional for very good reasons, but the 13M fools don’t care.
      They just recite “If you don’t like mass murder, you must be a druggie! Hee Hee Hee!”
      Idiots.

    this country is not safe for filipinos, more than 9000 dead, mr. segal attention: please do your research before commenting on anything

    • john appleseed

      13,000

  • Notski

    The Philippines is safe ?? . of course if you stay in 5 star hotels and surrounded with security 24/7 you will feel safe. Try living in caloocan without security then you will realise how wrong your statement is

  • john appleseed

    His job is reading script lines that somebody else wrote.
    Why is the Manila Bulletin citing this buffoon as if he was an expert?

    Duterte is a mass murderer.
    The families of his victims don’t feel safe.

  • Seagal, Duterte just cursed you caucasians and told you to leave the country. He has a deep seated hatred for westerners like you. He’d rather have you killed.

    • Waifu Engineering

      No, he just hates liberals. Duterte is not racist. In fact, the Ku Klux Klan likes him.

  • Romarico Tongos

    The foreign actor has no choice; he has to say praises or else he will be asked to leave the country in 24 hours.

  • Herman Near

    Haha, look at this silly looking echo chamber where the anti-Duterte sock puppets converge with their own delusions.
