This is what Harry Roque said about Mar Roxas that earned mixed reactions from the people online.
MAR ROXAS – In a controversial statement against Mar Roxas, Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque received mixed comments over his remark.
“Can you really imagine a Roxas leading this country amidst the many trials we have had? From COVID-19 pandemic to China.” – This is what Presidential spokesman Harry Roque told veteran broadcast journalist Luchi Cruz Valdez on Wednesday, March 24, in TV5’s “Deretsahan”. He asked the public that if Roxas is the leader, will he be able to do something as effective as what the president he’s serving has done.
In a certain tone, he added that he himself couldn’t imagine considering his track record when Super Typhoon Yolanda hit the country and the Mamasapano clash. To recall, Roxas is the former Interior Secretary of former President Benigno Aquino III when Typhoon Yolanda claimed 6,340 lives way back in 2013 and when 44 Special Action Forces (SAF) troopers got killed in Mamasapano, Maguindanao clash versus the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF) and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF).
He even once said in a speech that the country wouldn’t have a single dosage of COVID-19 vaccine if we have a different president. He said about Roxas, “Hindi ko maisip kung Mar Roxas became president, knowing yung mga track record niya sa mga pagsusubok sa Yolanda tsaka doon sa Mamasapano.”
To recall, Roxas came second in Duterte during the 2016 presidential polls against other politicians like Senator Grace Poe, former Vice President Jejomar Binay, and the late Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago. Duterte won and in his another shot for Senate in 2019, he lost again.
Here are some reactions from Twitter:
The man is enjoying his life with his family yet you have the balls to drag him to this? Pathetic.
i dont like mar roxas but to go this low knowing that he’s not the issue in the first place??
Huwag ka na mandamay ng iba, nagpapaandar ka na naman.
Dragging Mar Roxas into this fiasco? How bold and petty.
