President Rodrigo Duterte made a promise to God to stop cursing in his speeches upon arriving in Davao City after his official visit in Japan on October 27.
He further explained that when people know him really well, he can read your mind and cited an example when he was still young.
He narrated he shared a solemn moment during his flight, “ I was looking at the skies as I was coming over here. And I everybody was asleep snoring. A voice said that you know ‘If you don’t stop (inaudible), I will bring this plane down now.” Ok so I promised God not to express, slang cuss words.”The people gave applause to him when Duterte emphasized that he is making a promise now since he made a promise to God.
On his speech, he even threw a joke “huwag masyadong palakpak, baka mapalpak pa tuloy.”
Meanwhile, when asked if he would no longer throw profane statements to the United States, European Union, or Sen. Leila de Lima the President replied there is always a time.

Duterte concluded “there is always a time. A time to be fouled-mouther. I don’t like anybody reading my mind. It’s all calibrated, it’s always timing. Watch out for one thing, that’s what I’ve learned miscalculation.
For the record, Duterte did not utter a single curse during his speech.Source: GMA Network
