“He is a master of strategy in sparking discussions and finding solutions afterwards,” This is how Senator Alan Peter Cayetano described the statements of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte regarding the media killings and catcalling issue.
“I think ‘yung mga sinabi niya like sa media, I think that was on purpose, I think he really wanted a discussion on how to reform the media,” Sen. Cayetano told Philippine Daily Inquirer in an exclusive interview on Sunday.
It can be recalled that during the campaign period, Incoming President Rodrigo Duterte said he’d rather lose the elections than lose his identity.
“If I lose the (presidential) election, I will still survive. But if I lose my identity in this universe, in this planet, I am nothing,” he said during the campaign period.
Sen. Cayetano said that “People fell in love with Rodrigo Roa Duterte the way he does things”. He added that media should also do their role and continue their job “We have to play our role. Like media, don’t back down”, Cayetano said.
