President Duterte’s Christmas Wish
CHRISTMAS WISH – President Rodrigo Roa Duterte said he will accept any gifts but if possible he wants to have a motorcycle as Christmas present.
Philippine President Duterte is the 16th chief executive of the country. He is known to being so hardcore because he has no qualms of spilling harsh words towards his fellow politicians.
Recently, the media asked President Rodrigo Duterte what gift he would like to receive this Christmas. Based on a report from Philstar, he said he wishes nothing for himself but for his county. If anyone insisted to give him something, he’ll accept it but if possible, he wants to have a new motorcycle as a Christmas present.
“None actually. I’ll tell you something. Ako, hindi ako magdadasal para sa sarili ko, para sa bayan ko na. So ako, kung ano lang ibigay. Kung pwede sana motor,” he said.
Previously, President Duterte admitted that he’s suffering migraines due to the injury he sustained in a motorcycle accident in the 1960s. It can also be remembered that he was forced to cut short his Japan trip due to “unbearable pain” in his lower back.
Days before his visit to Japan, the 74-year-old politician fell from his motorcycle inside the Malacañang complex. He said his shoe fell off while he’s maintaining his balance.
Based on a report from ABS-CBN, Duterte said he would still ride his motorcycle because it served as his therapy. “The rule sa motor is pag sumemplang ka, kailangan sumasakay ka ulit to avoid being overcome with fear… I am old and I want to just…magmo-motor talaga ako, maganda yun,” he said.
