PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has invited Japan's new Imperial Couple to visit the Philippines, Malacañang said on Monday, June 3, 2019.

Duterte is notorious for his foul-mouthed speeches that include insults, threats to perceived enemies and references to rape that he casts as jokes.

After accusing his political opponent and vocal critic Senator Antonio Trillanes IV of being gay, Duterte said he could sense he himself was also "a bit gay" while married to his former wife, Elizabeth Zimmerman.

Duterte has a wavering record when it comes to gay rights.

He has also used homosexuality as an insult, including against Philip Goldberg, then United States ambassador to Manila.

Speaking of contradictory, he wrapped up his comments on Thursday with what sounds like a suggestion he might still be gay.
