Magsama kayong lahat! Duterte wants Reds, Liberals, critics to unite
Despite their political colors, President Rodrigo Duterte wants all of his critics to unite “into one command” against him.
“I would be happy really if they would start to merge into one command. Itong mga komunista at itong Liberal. At ito ‘yung iba na gustong paalisin ako. Mag-isa-isa na lang kayo, isang grupo,” Duterte said at the relaunch of the refurbished New Executive Building press briefing room Thursday (October 12).
The President said his critics should band together so “we can focus on all of you” since he believes they share the same ideological views.
Duterte earlier accused the communists of joining forces with the “yellows,” or those allied with the Liberal Party, to oust him from his post.
Militant and LP politikos have criticized Duterte over some of his policies, such as the bloody war on drugs and the cozy relations he is building with China at the expense of the Philippines’ sovereignty.
