Duterte takes a dig at Leni’s ability to talk peace with Reds: Sinong maniniwala kay Robredo?

May 20, 2017 @ 9:52

President Rodrigo Duterte said communist rebels can’t afford to kill him even if they wanted to because the only road to peace was through him.

Duterte said the alternative of having Vice President Leni Robredo take over and make a more progress with the Comunist Party of the Philippines-New Peoples Army-National Democratic Front (CPP-NPA-NDF) was inconceivable.

“So ngayon hindi ko na maasahan ‘yan (peace talks). Hindi naman ako titirahin niyan. Kasi pag pinatay nila ako, wala na silang kausap. Sino kausapin nila? Si Robredo. Patay,” said Duterte at the SMX Convention Center in Davao City Friday.
“Sinong maniwala kay Robredo? Susmaryosep,” he added.

Duterte has a love-hate relationship with Robredo as he has never kept it a secret that he wanted losing vice presidential bet Bongbong Marcos to win in the 2016 elections.

Duterte tapped Robredo as his “housing queen” but forced her to resign less than six months in office. Last March, he offered to take Robredo to dinner with her family but he has yet to fix a date up to the present.
