Minority senators expressed warning over President Rodrigo Duterte's latest tirade against US President Barack Obama.
On Tuesday, October 4, Duterte again lashed out at the US leader, who has been critical of the administration's drug war.
"Mr Obama, you can go to hell.
EU [European Union], better choose purgatory. Puno na ang impiyerno. Bakit ako matakot sa inyo? (Hell is full. Why should I be scared of you?)" said Duterte.
Senate Minority Leader Ralph Recto and Sen.Trillanes once again called out Duterte's attacks against international leaders, especially the US.
"I don't think it is proper for the President to make offensive remarks to the President of the United States, hindi ba (right)? Sa tingin ko, mali 'yun (I think that's wrong)," Recto told reporters on Wednesday, October 5.
The senator warned it is the Filipino people who will ultimately pay the price for Duterte's actions.
