Duterte lives for 16M who voted for him: Kayo ang Diyos ko!
President Rodrigo Duterte considers the 16 million Filipinos who voted for him as his God.
In a speech at the Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise Summit in Pampanga, Duterte said he would rather die after his term because he does not know what else to do.
“Kaya sabihin ko, kung may Diyos, patayin mo na ako pagkatapos ko nitong trabahong na ito kasi wala na akong magagawa. Nakuha ko na ang pinaka — dream of every Filipino, unintentionally though because I never believed that I would have won,” he said.
Duterte took pride in winning the presidential race even though he did not have the support of most politikos during the campaign season. He credited those who voted for him for his victory.
“‘Yan ang Diyos ko. The six million Filipinos plus the others who voted for me. Above the margin and those who really voted for me, 15 plus ‘yon. Sila ang Diyos ko,” he said.
Duterte won the 2016 presidential race with over 16.6 million votes, which is 6.7 million more than what the second placer, former senator Mar Roxas, received.
