Mahina si Leni sa diskarte: Duterte

News

President Rodrigo Duterte said during a dinner he hosted for the Philippine Military Academy Alumni Association, Inc. (PMAAAI) in Malacañang Palace on October 4 that Vice President Leni Robredo is weak in making strategy.

“Sa totoo lang sir, even her – ‘yung public statements, I do not mean to offend the lady. She’s very good. She’s gentle. Pero mahina talaga si Leni,” Duterte said. “Hindi mahina ‘yung utak, pumasa ng bar eh. Mahina sa diskarte.”

He added that the communists will take advantage of Robredo’s weakness.

“Ang sasakay niyan – ‘yung left was repudiated,” Duterte said. “So why would I give it to the left? Why would I give it to the yellow?

In response, Robredo said in a statement: “Wala namang may gustong magkasakit ang Pangulo. Pero hindi dahilan ang sakit para maliitin na naman ako.”

“Hinalal kami ng taumbayan para guminhawa ang kanilang buhay. Pero dahil sa diskarte ng Pangulo nitong dalawang taon, tumaas ang presyo ng mga bilihin, lalong humirap ang buhay, dumami ang alegasyon ng korapsyon, at libo-libong mga Pilipino ang pinatay,” she added. “Hindi ko ugali ang mamulitika; mas gusto kong tahimik na magtrabaho. Pero sasabihin ko ito ngayon: ang tapang, lakas, at diskarte, hindi nadadaan sa mapanirang salita. Ang kailangan ng taumbayan ay tapang sa gawa.”
