De La Salle University History professor Van Ybiernas defended President Rodrigo Duterte against the people criticizing his state visit to the Middle East.

People accused the government of spending too much, and Ybiernas said that the gains from the visit are far greater than the money spent.



He said that the fact that it was a state visit means that the President is invited by other nations and thus the motion is part of upholding diplomacy.

"Bahala na yung pangulo sa kung sino ang isasama nya, basta't official function. Nung panahon ng giyera, sagot ng gobyerno ng America ang tour nina Bob Hope at iba pang celebrity para aliwin ang mga tropang Amerikano. Hindi uncommon ang magsama ng mga popular na celebrity sa opisyal na lakad ng pangulo. Kunsabagay, haters gonna hate talaga," he said.



Ybiernas said that he was a former Overseas Filipino Worker and thus he knows that the Filipinos abroad were excited to see the President.

"Andaming taong inaanay ang utak. Layuan nyo po ang mga ganyan. Mahirap na. Baka mahawa kayo," Ybiernas said.
