There has been no falling out between President Rodrigo Duterte and Senator Manny Pacquiao, according to Malacañang.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque made the statement after Pacquiao said he found Duterte’s stance on the West Philippine Sea “lacking” and far from his remarks during the 2016 presidential campaign.
“I don’t think there is a falling out,” Roque said in his televised briefing Tuesday.
“Hanggang ngayon nananatiling napakalaking fan ni Senator Pacquiao ang ating presidente sa larangan ng palakasan, lalo na sa larangan ng boxing. Hanggang doon na lang po tayo,” he also said.
Pacquiao is the President of the ruling party PDP-Laban, the political party of Duterte.
