Senator Recto: We will all pay for the foul words of the President
Wednesday, October 5, Senators Ralph Recto and Antonio Trillanes IV expressed concern regarding the last statements of President Rodrigo Duterte to US President Barack Obama.
Duterte's remarks to Obama and European Union (EU) made controversial to local and international headlines.

Senate Minority Leader Ralph Recto said that it was not proper for Duterte to make an offensive remarks to Obama.

"I don't think it is proper for the President to make offensive remarks to the President of the United States, hindi? Sa tingin ko, mali 'yun," Recto said.
"'Yung hindi magandang salita ng Pangulo, lahat tayo magbabayad diyan. We will all pay the price for this. He's speaking for all Filipinos," Recto added.
Recto also said that Duterte should be cautious because it might scare investors.
"Halimbawa, 'yung piso, humihina na nga, hindi ba? Mayroon ngayong nagsasabi na puwedeng pumalo sa P50 to one, may political risk. At ang political risk na 'yan, tatamaan ang ekonomiya natin for sure. May implication lahat 'yan," Recto said.

On Senator Antonio Trillanes IV part, his concern is about the OFW's in the US.
"Alam 'nyo, 'yung mga kababayan sa US, they're placed in an awkward position. Nag-ju-justify sila sa mga Amerikano, ibang lahi doon, kung bakit gano'n ang Presidente," Trillanes said.
"Nahihirapan sila sa workplace nila, social groups, so 'yun na nga, I hope mahinto na rin 'yan," Trillanes added.
