President Rodrigo Duterte hit Vice President Leni Robredo during his weekly address, reported CNN.
He took aim due to the statement of VP Leni, saying that to ask the U.S. to pay to be able to retain the Visiting Forces Agreement (VFA) is akin to extortion.
Duterte taking a jab at VP said, "Itong kay Robredo, sabi ko nga ma'am, kung ikaw ang presidente, hindi mo alam ang trabaho mo, dapat alam mo 'yan kasi abogado ka. You should not open your mouth when we are negotiating because maraming kasalanan ang Amerika sa atin."
In addition, he said that VP Leni is not really qualified to run for president.
"I'm sorry to say, you are not really qualified to run for president. You do not know your role in this government... Foreign relations with other countries is vested on the president alone," said Duterte.
On the other hand, Sen. Ping Lacson advised Duterte to read the 1987 Constitution, Inquirer noted.
