President Duterte Gustong Ipatakbo Si Trillanes At De Lima Bilang Presidente Para Sa Ating Bansa

MANILA – President Rodrigo Duterte on Monday said he would rather have either one of his two staunchest critics become the next president than have his daughter, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, succeed him.

In a pre-recorded public address, Duterte again expressed disapproval after his daughter expressed “openness” to join the presidential race in 2022.

“My stand is I am against really the candidacy of my daughter. I want her spared from the vagaries of politics dito sa Pilipinas lalo na itong mga (here in the Philippines especially from) personalities around in the likes of [former Senator Antonio] Trillanes, si [Senator Leila] De Lima, walang ginawa kundi mang-atake ng kapwa tao nila (who did nothing but attack their fellowmen),” he said.

Duterte said it would pain him to see his daughter go through a wave of insults hurled by ”rude” Trillanes and “virulent” de Lima.

He explained that he would rather have either Trillanes or de Lima win the country’s highest office so they could do “whatever they want.”

“I would rather na kung sila-sila nalang ang patakbuhin at sila’y manalo, nagdadasal ako niyan at makita nila kung paano nila patatakbuhin ang gobyerno, kung gaano kahirap tapos after all yung pagod mo, walang katapusan ang batikos (I would rather that they run and win, I pray for that so they can experience what it’s like to run a government, how difficult it is and after all your exhaustion, it’s never-ending criticism) because they can never be satisfied,” he said.

Describing them as being both “hungry” for power, Duterte said it only made sense for either of the two to have a “taste” of the presidency so that they could also be judged by the Filipino people.

Sara, he said, could still run for president “some other time.”

“How I wish that they would run and they will win. Gusto ko itabi ko nalang muna ang anak ko (I want to reserve my daughter). Maybe some other time, not at this time when the Philippine politics is crowded with people in the likes of Trillanes tapos yung si (then also) de Lima,” he said.

He also reiterated that the presidency is a job that is “not good” for a women, especially because criticisms could only “hurt” her.

“As a father, I would not want that to happen to my daughter,” he said.

Meanwhile, Duterte admitted that he is only considering running as vice president next year to “scare off” his critics.

“Ako naman yung vice president ko, pangtakot ko lang sa kanila ‘yan pero sabi ko (I am only using my willingness to run as vice president to scare them, but I said) let us see. If it is good for the country, I will do it. If it does not contribute anything to our Republic, huwag nalang. Magsasayang lang tayo ng oras pati (maybe not. We will just waste time and) you contribute to the conundrum of the moment,” he said.

During a meeting with members of ruling Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), Duterte said he is “sold to the idea” of joining the vice presidential race next year.

He said he is “seriously thinking” of accepting his party mates' appeal for him to seek the second top post in the country.
