De Lima against Duterte: 'Malaking kahibangan!'


The controversial senator criticized Duterte's decision to break Philippines away from America.

On Friday, Senator Leila De Lima denounced President Rodrigo Duterte's shocking announcement that the Philippines will join forces with China and Russia, branding the proposition as crazy.

“Ano na naman ‘yung sinasabi na ‘It's the Philippines, China and Russia against the world?’ Malaking kahibangan!” De Lima said during a forum on women's rights in Quezon City.

During Duterte's visit to China, he declared that he wants to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin to establish closer foreign relations.

"I realign myself in your ideological flow and maybe I will also go to Russia to talk to Putin. There are three of us against the world. China, Philippines, Russia," the president said.

De Lima, shocked, reacted, "Ano kayang meron sa China, na kung anong pag-aaway at pagmumura ang ginagawa ng Pangulong Duterte sa mga bansang nagmamalasakit sa atin ay sobra-sobra naman ang kabaitan niya sa China kahit na inaangkin nila ang ating teritoryo?"

She also said that Duterte should have asked the Filipinos' opinion first before making such seemingly ludicrous move.

“It's an earth-shaking announcement. Wala man siyang respeto sa atin, na sana nagpaalam muna siya atin bago niya i-announce yun sa ibang bansa,” De Lima said.

“It is because of this that I am deeply concerned that the president's foreign policy and pronouncements, especially yung kakasabi pa lang niya sa China,” she added.

De Lima concluded that majority of the Filipinos like the president's plan, saying, "I don’t think majority of our people like that."
