DUTERTE TO HIS ENEMIES: I TEND TO BELIEVE NOW, GOD MADE ME PRESIDENT
Friday, October 15, In a speech in Batangas province of President Rodrigo Duterte, he said if God wants him to finish his 6 years term, it will be tough for his opponent and they have to endure it. Duterte talked about how incredible his victory in May's presidential elections. He said that no financial resources and national political machinery.
“I tend to believe now, that it was God who gave it to me.” Duterte said.
Since Duterte became President due to divine intervention, he said it was easy for him to ignore rumors such as impeachment, coup d'etat ot assassination by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
“Don’t scare me, you people from Manila with your plan to hold a rally next year and remove me from office. Because if I go, that is part of my destiny. That is what it is so don’t come out in newspapers warning Duterte about a coup d’etat or others,” he said.
“If I become President for just two months or two years, that is part of my destiny, what God gave me. So I just let them threaten me with launching a coup d’etat or people power, these sons of a…,” he said.
“But if I reach six years, you’re all dead,” he added.
Duterte also said he owed nothing to anybody. Some rich people refused to help him in his campaign until they were sure of his victory.
But when the time that his victory was sure, he rejected their contributions because those kinds of issue is not new to him.
Duterte said he got through the worst of what his political rivals, the “yellow,” threw at him in the elections, especially when they realized that he wasn’t going down in the survey before Election Day.
He said this was the time when “garbage” like the death squad allegations and Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV’s exposé on billions of pesos allegedly stashed in his undisclosed bank accounts started to come out.
“If I had that much money, you won’t even see me here. At my age of 71, I’d rather travel anywhere,” he said.
