This is a serious change from the status quo.  USA is out.  China is in.  Duterte sends message that:

"I've realigned myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to (President Vladimir) Putin and tell him that there are three of us against the world - China, Philippines and Russia. It's the only way," Duterte told his Beijing audience.

I am wondering how many expats, it any, will decide its now time to put the exit plan into play?

What difference does it make?

This only impacts US expats as the average American doesn't have a clue where the Philippines is. Can anyone tell me what the US gets from the Philippines? Plenty of beaches in California and Florida!

Tell Duterte to take a look at Cuba and tell us how that worked out.

Duterte may or may not become a dictator, but one thing he is not is a totalitarian.

Duterte is talking about making US visitors get a visa. He complained that Filipinos must to visit the US, and he was once questioned when he wanted to visit a girlfriend in the US, so fair is fair in his words.
