Duterte insists on VFA termination to Trump

The Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) is going to be a thing of the past if no intervention would be done to change the mind of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

In one of his speaking engagement in a gathering of local governments in Pasay city said United States of America (USA) President Donald Trump talked to Duterte urging him to reconsider his decision in terminating the VFA agreement between the two countries.

“Now I’ll make it public, public official ako (I am a public official). Si Trump, pati yung others (Trump and the others) are trying to save the Visiting Forces Agreement. Sabi ko, ayoko (I said, I don’t want to),” the President said.

“One is that napakabastos ng Amerikano, talagang sobrang bastos. Yung mga CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), nakikinig ngayon, mga Amboy, sabihan niyo gobyerno niyo bastos kayo (Americans are very disrespectful. Really disrespectful. If the CIA is listening...tell your government, you are disrespectful). Imagine demanding the release of de Lima under threat that we will not receive the aid, that all persons who had a hand in the imprisonment of de Lima will no be allowed to go to the US?” he added.
“P***** i**, ano ba meron sa Amerika ganunin mo ’ko (What is in America that you have to treat me like that)?” he added.
It was not clear whether Trump personally called Pres. Duterte or the message was sent through emissaries.

PRRD disputes that VFA is beneficial to the country

President Duterte disputes the reasoning that the VFA has been beneficial to the country even cited the ongoing insurgency being confronted by the government.

“We’ve been fighting the communists for 53 years. Kung nakatulong talaga ang America, p***** i** hanggang ngayon (If America really helped us, son of a b****, how come we are still dealing with it)?” the President said.
