Duterte leaves for Vietnam

President Rodrigo Duterte is now leaving for Vietnam.

In a statement he read at the NAIA prior to his departure, he said, “I look forward to renewing our ties and friendship with Vietnam.”

He allowed the news reporters to ask him 3 questions.

When asked on the issues relating to Senator Leila De Lima, Duterte said, “I think she is breaking down. I suggest she should take some days off. If she will continue to listen, she will have a nervous breakdown.”

Duterte also said, the senator has long been persecuting him on the alleged extra-judicial killings.

“Ako yung inapi-api nya,” Duterte referred to De Lima.

When a reporter asked him to comment on De Lima’s statement days ago that he could be attacted to her and that is why he is supposedly hunting her down, Duterte asked the reporter to repeat the question.

To answer the repeated question, Duterte did not utter any word and instead, acted as if he was going to faint.

He then left the rostrum and happily shook hands with other passengers at the NAIA.
