• ‘Yellows’ want to install Robredo – Duterte

    1

    President Rodrigo Duterte on Wednesday said the “yellows” are behind efforts to remove him from office to install Vice President Leni Robredo as chief executive.

    In his speech during the 4th State Conference of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption in Malacañang, Duterte accused the yellow group of being behind protests against him.

    “’Yung mga yellow diyan, nagde-demonstrate kayo dyan [The yellows, you keep on demonstrating]. You want me out because you cannot accept defeat,” he said.

    “I know that you’re doing it for the Vice President,” the President added.

    Duterte was referring to supporters of former president Benigno Aquino 3rd.

    Yellow symbolized the color of the opposition during the martial law regime.

    Duterte said he will not be cowed by attacks over his campaign against illegal drugs.

    He said a people power movement against him will not succeed because even the New People’s Army (NPA) is supporting him.

    “The Left? They won’t even allow me to step down… The NPAs are pro-Duterte,” the President said.

    1. Duterte could have used precise language in explaining things. Instead he use words purposely that can be interpreted so many ways. Sen Gordon is correct. Someday Duterte will fall on his own sword. The words he used now will hunt him when he no longer is the president. His unchecked ego is getting the better of him.
