Philippines’ Duterte discovered this week that his actions have consequences | The Washington Post

It’s only Wednesday, but President Rodrigo Duterte must be ready for the weekend.

Fresh off his trip to China and his call for a “separation” from the United States, the president of the Philippines is for the first time feeling the impact of what seems — to some at least — as a concerted effort to alienate his allies.

The first hit: the defection of former president Fidel Ramos. Duterte’s camp on Wednesday confirmed that Ramos, Duterte’s China envoy, has resigned just four months into the president’s tenure.
