President Rodrigo Duterte said Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano may join the first batch of Filipinos who will take back features in Kalayaan Island Group occupied by China.
“If he wants to fight with China, he can lead. I would be glad to send him as the first batch of delegation of Filipinos who’d want to take the Spratly Islands and all of those they occupied now,” Duterte said during a press conference in Myanmar on March 19 after meeting the Filipino community.
The statement from the President came after Alejano filed an impeachment case against him and a supplement complaint regarding his position on Benham Rise.
“Sige. Siya ang mauna. Maraming galit na nangyari sa ganon. Ako, it would be a slaughter for the Filipinos to do that. ‘Yung kanyang tapang-tapangan, huwag munang… do not compare me with you. You are all cowards. Alam ninyo nakita ‘yung kagitingan ninyo noong nagmutiny kaya mga walang hiya kayo,” the President added.
