On Monday, President Rodrigo Duterte urged Sen. Manny Pacquiao to carefully focus on any presidential plans.
This should be considered carefully by politicians. Manny, I think Manny’s fun, well, it’s good… Feeling tired is the only thing you get out of this job.
In the event, the boxer-turned-senator was one of the guests.
Duterte reiterated his opposition to any effort to get his wife, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio, to run for president in the election of 2022.
Duterte: I asked Sara not to run for president, any national office The chief executive said he wasn’t going to want his daughter to suffer the same problems he’s got over the presidency.
If it wasn’t for the country’s affection, this is the only thing that encourages me. Except for work and anxiety, you wouldn’t get anything from this job and be under pressure.
Many lawmakers said earlier that if she wanted to join the presidential race in 2022, she would be willing to back Duterte-Carpio.
