MANILA — Despite President Rodrigo Duterte’s criticism against the United Nations, which has been critical of his war on drugs, its trust rating still increased by 8%, based on the latest Pulse Asia Survey.
Political analyst Ramon Casiple said the result of the survey is not surprising anymore with all the issues and accusations faced by the administration.
” Yung pagtingin nung tao against doon sa killings at saka sa EJK and to support syempre sa mga institusyon or mga personalidad na nagcri-criticize nito (It reflects the view of the people against the killings and the EJK in support of the institutions or personalities criticizing it.),” Casiple said .
The survey also showed that a large majority of Filipinos still trust America which has been repeatedly criticized by the President for its negative comments against his anti-drug campaign.
The result is opposite for China and Russia despite the closer relationship the Philippines is trying to build with these countries.
Casiple said history and past relations of the Philippines with the US are among the factors that have affected the survey result.
“Makikita mo yung historical ano kasi dito na matagal tayo sa cold war period na kung saan malakas sa Pilipinas yung anti-communism. Naninibago tingin ko yung maraming Pilipino dahil nasanay tayo na nasa loob lang ng isang umbrella yung Amerika (You can see it’s historical… the cold war period was long. wherein the anti-communism view was strong in the Philippines. I think many Filipinos are still adjusting because we are used to being under the umbrella of America.),” Casiple added.
Malacañang has the same view.
“After all these years, we’ve been programmed to think that these were the enemies but the President is breaking free. He’s a disrupter,” said presidential spokesperson, Ernesto Abella. — Leslie Longboen | UNTV News & Rescue
