Vice President Leni Robredo expects the surge of fake news against her to continue on social media despite her efforts to disprove them.
Robredo said on her weekly show on dzXL radio that online trolls will keep coming for her because of money.
“Hanggang kasi, Ka Ely, may perang nakurakot, talagang ibabayad nila iyon sa mga walang kakuwenta-kuwentang bagay,” she said, addressing her co-host, broadcaster Ely Saludar.
Robredo said the latest fake news to be spread about her was her supposed statement that water pipes needed to be enlarged for water to flow.
She believes the objective of the reports are to make her sound stupid.
“Ano iyong makukuha nila sa paggawa ng fake news laban sa akin? Eh gusto kang i-discredit,” the Vice President said.
