Despite being friends, President Rodrigo Duterte is wondering what former senator Lito Lapid has done as a politician.
“Kaibigan kami ni Lapid. Sabi niya, ‘May mga bagay na kaya ninyo na hindi ko kaya. Pero may mga bagay naman na kaya ko na hindi niyo kaya’. Sa anong paraan? Well,” said Duterte in a speech delivered in Isabela province Wednesday evening.
The actor turned politician is back in the political arena to reclaim the post he left in 2016.
“Anong kaya mo? Alam ng Pilipino. Hindi mo man mabola ang Pilipino. Anong kaya mo? Marami. Isa sa mga kaya mo ‘yung nakikita namin, hindi namin naririnig. Iyan ang totoo diyan,” the President said.
The latest Pulse Asia survey, conducted January 26to 31, 2019, showed Lapid, author of the Free Legal Assistance Act, Expanded Senior Citizens Act, and Biometrics Law, at 3rd to 6th spot.
