President Rodrigo Duterte’s ‘rockstar’ appeal has been seen in the past, and on Sunday, it was again evident when he arrived in Israel. Meeting with the Filipino community in Jerusalem, Duterte was greeted with loud cheers and shouts from overseas Filipino workers (OFW) eager to see him in person. Some were even lucky enough to shake his hand.

According to social media posts, around 1,400 Pinoys gathered at the Ramada Hotel in Jerusalem to welcome Duterte. And the minute his name was announced and the president entered the hall, it was pandemonium.

And since becoming president, there are many more things to dislike about him. Yet, Duterte is loved and admired by many.
