A Filipina widow of a wealthy African-American is planning to lead a massive demonstration against him, Duterte said on Friday.
This Filipino-American community leader denied that she is plotting a massive rally to unseat President Rodrigo Duterte.
In a statement, she said, “I am concerned that the President is being given misinformation designed to divide the country and advance the interests of a certain political group while casting Filipino Americans in an unfavorable light”.
“So, let us see kasi meron– next year a certain financier, mayaman na babae who married a black and is now a millionaire and she is planning to do massive demonstration. All those who are of this western persuasion,” Duterte said in a speech on Friday, November 4.
