Two US senators critical of PH’s drug war face ban


By Genalyn Kabiling

DA NANG, Vietnam — Two foreign lawmakers critical of President Duterte’s drug war may be banned from visiting the Philippines.

The President has disclosed plans to put “two senators” on the immigration list after supposedly planning to protest in case he visits the United States.

“Sabihin ko sa kanila, you are too presumptuous. What made you think that I am even planning or thinking about visiting your country?” Duterte said during a press conference after meeting the Filipino community in Da Nang last Thursday night.

“I’d like to know their names also because I can include them in the Immigration barred list. Totoo,” he added.

If these lawmakers were opposed to his visit to their homeland, Duterte claimed he could either ban or protest their travel to the Philippines.

“You are also prohibited from entering mine or I will protest if that is the farthest that I can go,” he said.

Duterte said he would even meet the foreign lawmakers at the airpot and tell them he does not like them too.

“I’ll meet you in the airport. Somebody should tell me they’re coming. And I will just see you. You, son of a b*tch. You can come here because we have existing agreements. But I really do not like you also,” he said.

“If you do not like me, I do not like you. We’re even,” he added.

Apart from the United States, the President also revealed that he was not inclined to visit Australia too.

“Alam mo, you might also include Australia. There were both instances, I said, I will not visit those countries while being the President of this country,” he said.

Duterte gave the remarks when asked if he would visit the US after his highly-anticipated meeting with US President Donald Trump.

    Australia? I thought we’re talking aboit the US senators. I didn’t vote for him but i do hope the various opposition groups against the alleged EJK take just one case and convict the president first before making any conclusions. Likewise the shators should be wise enough to investigate further the lies they have no proffs other than a drug cartel problem in the country that is self destructing, killing their own members on the sloghtest suspicion.
