Jakarta, Indonesia [9/9/2016] President Rodrigo Duterte upon arrival, headed straight to the Shangri-La Hotel to meet up with the Filipino community in Indonesia to inform about what the government’s plan that includes to their well-being. This is his first ever state visit. Even before the President arrived at the event, he has been bombarded with controversies. The most controversial is to that of President Obama. He took the platform to point out these issues.
I was with President Widodo, what is the dimension of your problem? In Indonesia, we have 4 million drug addicts. Eh, sabi ko, nauna ka lang pala ng ilang thousand! We are really worried. Ganito yan.
I never made a statement here. Do not believe that. There was never any interview here. But kung mag spin itong media, that’s why I said, if you are really, my advice for you, magkaibigan lang, for whatever reason, what can you say, kung ano masabi mo, because they can spin stories several times over and all lies, I never confronted Obama here cause I do not know him. Before taking off from Davao, nagkaroon ng presscon.
Alam mo, ganito yan, itong mga yellow, may jaundice eh, at itong mga taga State Department, mabasa ninyo ang Philippine news that they were trying to crucify me for the extra judicial killing at sabing ganun, I will be investigated by the international court. Di hinayaan ko na lang. Sabi ko, United States, why? Or should I answer them? Eh bakit? So yung ganun. And that there will be a certain time that Obama will ask me about the human rights problem. Sabi ko, I do not answer to anybody except to the Filipino people. I am only responsible to you. Kaya sabi ko, “Who he?” yun ang sinabi ko. if somebody brings it out, and that was in the airport in Davao City, it would be an act of disrespect. Bastos yan. Yun lang ang sinabi ko. and you can review the tapes. Hindi ko sinabing #$%@. May sinabi ako, not in relation with Obama.
He also cited about a live report of Ed Lingao that is immediately picked by the international press.
You can review the tape because about yesterday, si Ed Lingao, whom, yung breaking news naglagay doon ng statement na minura ko daw si Obama. Ed Lingao, just also read it from the report from the correspondents in Davao. Ni review niya. Sya yung anchor eh. Then I found out, andiyan, lumabas sa Facebook, he apologized. Because I never made any reference to Obama. Kaya pinapaaway lang.
