Politics & Governance

“Iyong mga Chinese dito hayaan mo ‘yan na dito magtrabaho. Hayaan mo. Bakit? We have 300,000 Filipinos in China,” President Rodrigo Duterte said on February 23 during the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) Laguna Campaign Rally.

“Kaya hindi ako maka – sabihin, o umalis kayo dito, deport ka doon. Eh kung bigla paalisin ‘yun doon 300 of them?” he added.

“Just like in the Middle East. Isang beses lang talaga ako nag p***** i** noong nakita ko ‘yung Pilipina nasa freezer,” he said. “Mabuti ngayon. Ngayon ang Pilipina, at least doon sa Kuwait, may cellphone, ang passport wala ng – kanya na. One day off siya tapos separate bedroom, enclosure. She can cook her own food. Sabi ko, Tanggapin ninyo ‘yan? Wala? Ah ‘di walang Pilipina mag – bawalan ko na.”
