President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Friday gave Vice President Leni Robredo his unsolicited advice which is to not run for the presidency because she does not know anything.

In an exclusive interview with CNN Philippines, the Chief Executive bared that the country won’t be in good hands once Robredo assumed the presidency.

“Leni, hindi ako pro-Alan, hindi ako…huwag kang tumakbo ng Presidente. Wala ka talagang alam,” Duterte said.

“Disgrasya kayo pag si Leni ang… subukan n’yo,” he noted, adding how Robredo, who is also a lawyer, took the Bar exams twice.

Duterte’s remarks against Robredo came days after he fired her as the co-chair of the Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) chair on Sunday. He said that he didn’t like the strategy of Robredo talking to a lot of countries and organizations such as the US, United Nations and Commission on Human Rights.

“‘Yung ayaw ko is, ‘yung pupunta ka sa America…you are making an asshole of yourself. You should have convened all the barangay captains, all the mayors, all the guys connected with the rehabilitation on the rural, urban level,” he said.
