Seagal gives Duterte a thumbs up, says PH ‘not dangerous at all’
Hollywood actor Steven Seagal, who’s in town to take part in the judging panel of the 2017 Miss Earth pageant and do postproduction work for his coming TV series “General Commander,” said the country’s current peace and order situation did not deter him from coming over.
“To be honest with you, I’m a big fan of the Philippine government. I think (President Rodrigo) Duterte is a good president and that he has been instrumental in making this country a safer place. What he has done is very good, in terms of trying to get the control back for the people. I don’t feel like this is a dangerous place at all, but a place that’s up-and-coming with the new leadership.”
Seagal paid a courtesy call on Duterte in Malacañang on Thursday. —MARINEL R. CRUZ
