Duterte on Bong Go: Bata-bata ito ni Xi Jinping!
Are there more similarities between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go apart from their Chinese blood?
Duterte on Monday hinted that Xi is also Go’s boss as he pushed anew for his aide’s senatorial bid.
In a speech at the Department of Foreign Affairs’ celebration of its 120th anniversary, Duterte recalled meeting with American military officials when he was mayor of Davao City.
In the middle of his anecdote, Duterte mentioned Go and got distracted.
“Nasaan na ba si Senator Go? Pakilala ka nga para manalo ka. Senator Go. Ayan. Iboto na lang ninyo, he said.
Duterte joked that Go already made a “sacrifice” by producing signages bearing his name.
“Eh nag-sakripisyo na rin nag-display diyan o, sa likod. Tumindig ka naman? Bata-bata ito ni Xi Jinping eh,” he said.
Duterte no longer elaborated on his statement.
