Pres. Duterte Slams VP Robredo Over Issues Amid Typhoon Ulysses Onslaught
DUTERTE – Philippine President Rodrigo Roa Duterte slammed Vice Pres. Leni Robredo saying she cannot really be president.
It is no secret to the public that there were several times in the past when the President and Vice Pres. Leni Robredo would be involved in an issue. There were heated statements coming from the president but, visibly, it is really the nature of the second top official of the land to stay clam against tirades.
Recently, the Pres. Duterte slammed Vice Pres. Robredo anew over the issues amid the onslaught of Typhoon Ulysses. The said tropical storm brought severe damage to several areas including Marikina and Cagayan.
Based on a report on Inquirer, in his late-night national address, the President accused the Vice President of lying when she allegedly questioned his absence amid the peak of the impact of Ulysses. He stressed that he is awake and is attending the virtual Summit in the Palace.
“I was here. I was attending the ASEAN Summit… At the same time, I would go whisper to the military guys how was it developing,” he said.
According to Pres. Duterte, the military do not anymore need orders as they were deployed two (2) days before. Based on the report, he expressed that half of his security was taken to be deployed on areas hit by the tropical storm.
“That is why you cannot be President really… You do not give orders on the day of the war. You’re dead. If that’s what you are, then don’t run for president,” the Chief Executive said.
