The tough-talking nature of President Rodrigo Duterte was once again on full display after addressing his critics in a speech given in Myanmar for his official visit. Despite the ongoing opposition about his administration’s anti-drug campaign, Duterte remained steadfast and lashed out at Senator Leila De Lima, Senator Antonio Trillanes and even Vice President Leni Robredo.
Duterte reiterated that he is willing to lay down his life, honor and his position as the president of the country for the relentless battle against drugs, even if his arch rivals attempt to bring him down in the process. He took a shot at Robredo, saying that the VP is eager to become the next president of the Philippines after taking his drug battles to the UN.
In his speech, the president also criticized Senator Leila De Lima who cited her involvement in the illegal drug trades during her time as the secretary of the DOJ being her downfall. He also brought up the allegations of Sen. Trillanes about the supposed P200 million bank deposits in the president’s account and challenged government officials to release any evidence and if proven true, he will resign as the president of the country.
