According to the former President, in making an appointment, the Chief Executive must believe that the appointee can get the job done, trust him or her to do the job, and to do it will.

“Kung wala lahat ‘yun, ba’t mo itatalaga? Pwede ba ‘yung itatalaga mo pero hindi mo pagkakatiwalaan? Medyo magulo yata,” he said.

Based on the report, Pres. Duterte previously expressed that he cannot trust Vice Pres. Robredo as he does not know her. On her part, she is not bothered by not having a specific role.

“Hindi ko na problema kung ‘di pa sila nagkakasundo sa role ko. Basta sa’kin, lahat na puwede kong gawin, gagawin ko,” the Vice President expressed.
