Presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte said he is not scared by the reports that his rivals will make an alliance to bring him down.
“I am not scared and I shouldn’t be scared,” Duterte said, “If they will pull me down, they will also be pulling each other down—just like crabs. No different from the crabs that I know,” he added.
Duterte’s campaign manager, Leoncio Evasco Jr. said their bet were not affected by the reports, adding that they already expected this.
“Rody is not frazzled by this at all. We are not affected. This is something that we have been expecting because they are desperate with the unstoppable surge of Rody to the top of the race,”Evasco said, “As we have said before, we have been expecting these attacks and we know they can be more sinister and desperate as we are approaching the homestretch,” he added.
“We believe that there is nothing that can possibly hurt Rody’s chances of being the president,” he said.
Evasco added that the tough-talking Mayor Rodrigo Duterte will be the last man standing because Filipino people are sick and tired of the rotten government ruled by the oligarchs and same politicians.
“They can campaign together against Duterte and intensify their attacks, but in the end, we are confident as we are ready that Duterte will be the last man standing,” Evasco said.
“This is because Duterte has the support of the millions and millions of Filipinos who are sick and tired of the rotten government ruled by the oligarchs and run by the same politicians.” He added.
