Raffy Tulfo addressed the issue that made him receive bashing from Duterte supporters
Broadcaster and YouTuber Raffy Tulfo has broken his silence on rumors saying that he will be running for Vice President against President Rodrigo Duterte.
Just recently rumors surfaced that Tulfo will enter politics and allegedly he is aiming to run for the second-highest position in the Philippine government. However, an insider from TV5 slammed the rumors saying that Tulfo asked permission from the network’s management to take a break from hosting his show to run for Senator.
Because of the rumors, many supporters of President Duterte bashed the broadcaster-vlogger. However, in a recently released statement, based on the article in Manila Bulletin, Raffy Tulfo refuted the rumors saying that he will run for Vice President. He said that there is no truth to this as he has “utmost respect” for the Chief Executive.
Tulfo admitted that there were politicians who indeed offered him to run for Vice President. “Hindi po ako tatakbo sa pagka bise presidente sa darating na halalan. Meron naghikayat sa akin na maging ka-tandem nila sa 2022 elections at tinanggihan ko. I said no. Why? Mataas ang respeto ko kay PRRD. Kay Pangulong Duterte,” he explained.
Tulfo also said that he has no intention to go against the President in the position of Vice President. The broadcaster-vlogger shared that he has several friends from different industries who called him regarding this issue.
He said that his friends who are die-hard supporters of Duterte momentarily got angry with him because of the rumors. However, after explaining and refuting the allegations against him, his friends believed him and they move on from the issue.
Raffy Tulfo also stressed that he is one of the 16 million voters of PRRD and that he even used his platform to campaign for the Chief Executive.
