Nakuha sa charm! Duterte: AFP won’t back revolutionary gov’t coz Robredo says so
Vice President Leni Robredo’s genial personality may be a factor why the Armed Forces of the Philippines won’t support the idea of having a revolutionary government.
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday (November 9) said Robredo was correct in having assurances on the matter from Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and other national security officials.
“Tama siya. Tinanong ko ang military. Sabi nila, ‘Hindi kami susuporta ng revolutionary government.’ Sabi ko, ‘Why?’ Sabi nila, Dahil sabi ni Vice President Robredo,'” Duterte told reporters in Vietnam.
“’O bakit?’” Sabi niya, ‘Mas gusto namin siya. Babae at saka hindi nagmumura.’ Ako, “O sige. ‘Di hindi tayo mag-revolutionary government,'” he added.
Duterte said declaring a revolutionary government is not something to be announced.
“Sino ba naman mag-announce mag-revolutionary ka? ‘Di mag-revolutionary ka na diretso. Bakit ka pa mag-drama-drama?” he asked.
Nevertheless, Duterte said Robredo had a point when she sought clarification on the issue of having a revolutionary government.
“Tama siya. Ayaw ng — Gusto ng military siya ang… Dapat sundin si Robredo,” he said.
Robredo received the assurance that the military will not support a revolutionary government during the security briefing she received this week.
