Rappler reported that Elago was misquoted. The statement stemmed from her speech during the Independence Day rally in 2018.

She said that the youth have no bright future with the President because of the administration’s policies, not Duterte himself.

“Ang mga kabataan sa ngayon ay walang magandang kinabukasan dahil sa pagpapatuloy ng pagpapatupad ng mga reporma na katulad ng K to 12 na sinalaksak sa lalamunan ng ating mga kabataan, ng mga guro, ng sektor ng edukasyon, upang mag-ambag sa pagpapalaki ng reserba ng lakas paggawa na nagpapatuloy sa pambabarat ng sahod ng ating mga manggagawa.”

29-year-old Sarah Jane Elago is a member of the House of Representatives in the 18th Congress. She was known to be the youngest lawmaker in the country.
