Pres. Rodrigo Duterte Says Leni Robredo is in a Hurry to Become President

Moreover, a few days after the president’s statement, Robredo made a video available for public viewing. The said video criticizes human rights abuses being committed in Dutertes’ administration’s war against illegal drugs.

In his speech to Filipinos in Myanmar, Duterte also expressed annoyance to his other critics like Senator Antonio Trillanes IV and Senator Leila de Lima.
