Only A Marcos As Successor Would Make Duterte Step Down And Not Leni Robredo.

August 15, 2018

President Duterte said he will step down comfortably if his successor would either be sen. Escudero or former Sen. Bongbong Marcos and not Vice President Leni Robredo.

Duterte made the statement as he reiterated that was already tired, and expressed doubt that he could still fulfill his promise to purge corruption in the government .

“Ako po ay sawa na (I have had enough). What is inside me is not really anger kasi wala ka talagang magawa eh (because you really cannot do anything). It’s the frustration that I cannot comply with my promise number one– corruption,” he said.

He said any decision about the resignation could be easy if former Senator Bong Bong Marcos or Senator Francis Escudero won the vice president's position.

“I think deep in my heart, if you follow the succession and Robredo takes over, hindi niya kaya (she cannot do it),” he said.

“Hindi niya kaya (She cannot do it), that’s my honest opinion ko lang. Kung sino na lang sana diyan (Maybe if it is), in the likes of [Senator Francis] Escudero or [former Senator] Bongbong Marcos,” he added.

However, Duterte explained that Robredo was not to fit or ready to lead the country, he had nothing against the Vice President. “Wala akong galit kay Robredo. Panalo na ako. Hindi ako nakikipag-away ng babae. Hindi nga ako sumasagot kung ano ang sinasabi nila (I have nothing against Robredo. I already won. I do not fight against women. I do not even answer their criticisms),” he said.

“I know at the time, for several years, I don’t want to mention names, Naga was the cradle of drugs. And it was there. And you can ask the Naga guys and the Naga addicts,” he said.

Duterte mentioned this in an earlier open event, but for sure Robredo will deny his claims

“Of course she will deny it,” the President said.
