Fil-Am entrepreneur Loida Lewis defends herself: "You have wrongfully accused me"

Home / Viral / Fil-Am entrepreneur Loida Lewis defends herself: "You have wrongfully accused me"

A staunch Duterte-dissenter, Filipino-American entrepreneur and lawyer Loida Lewis denies allegations that she is part of any movement aimed to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.


“I am NOT FUNDING nor am I part of ANY PLOT TO OUST YOU or destabilize the Philippine government. In fact, I have stayed silent on political issues these past months,” Lewis said in a statement she published on her Facebook page.

She points out that she keeps mum despite the threats and bashes that she receives from “online trolls”.

Lewis further expressed concern on Duterte’s stance on the West Philippine Sea.

“You know that we have worked long and hard for international recognition of Philippine Sovereignty on our Exclusive Economic Zone, which includes Scarborough Shoal and Kalayaan Islands,” Lewis said, “so much has been done, and we have WON THE ITLOS case against China, so we must continue to assert our rights, and protect our territory, our soil, our oil.”

Lewis gives implications on the extent of the Marcos family’s influence compared to hers.

“They [Marcos] have the $10 Billion wealth stolen from the Filipino people to influence peoples’ minds against duly elected officials. While I am flattered that you think I can influence NY Times and other media outlets, it is simply not true,” Lewis said.


In her full post on Facebook, Lewis said,

"Dear President Duterte,

Since you have wrongfully accused me in public as a “funder” of plots against you, please allow me to respond with facts, just as I have already responded to Sec. Jess Dureza last December.


1. I am NOT FUNDING nor am I part of ANY PLOT TO OUST YOU or destabilize the Philippine government. In fact, I have stayed silent on political issues these past months, despite the many lies being peddled by your online trolls against me, and the death threats I have received on my social media accounts.


2. I am now concerned mostly about the WEST PHILIPPINE SEA issue with China. You know that we have worked long and hard for international recognition of Philippine Sovereignty on our Exclusive Economic Zone, which includes Scarborough Shoal and Kalayaan Islands. So much has been done, and we have WON THE ITLOS case against China, so we must continue to assert our rights, and protect our territory, our soil, our oil.


3. The Marcos clan has more influence, power and money than me. They have the $10 Billion wealth stolen from the Filipino people to influence peoples’ minds against duly elected officials. While I am flattered that you think I can influence NY Times and other media outlets, it is simply not true. NY Times is an institution older than many of us. I do not work for them, and they are not beholden to anyone.


Thank you, President Duterte, for your time. It is my earnest prayer that with fairness, justice and righteousness, we will all learn to work together to lift up and establish our beloved nation and our people.


Dios mabalos,

Loida Nicolas Lewis

  1. let me say that the supporters of President Duterte are not trolls. Im definitely not a troll, im human and I support our President. One of the reasons the supporters thought you want duterte ousted are because of your speech video asking Duterte to step down and let Leni Robredo run the country. Wrong move, who do you think you are for saying it. What about the 16million who voted and still trusted him? Dont they have any say on it? WHen you made that video and viraled on FB you sounded like you own Phils. Thats what come across to some. If ever President Duterte say something against someone, its always coz he knows something. DUTERTE IS NOT DUMB.

  3. Nobody believes this woman who imagines herself as a kingmaker. Just go away and don't meddle in the affairs of the country you left for good many years ago. Why not try to destabilize instead the government of Trump who trashed your candidate Hillary in the last elections...?

  8. You're such an example of escaped Oligarch or Minion trying to cope and influence other race but failure to stay home to contribute good and help build Philippines a better place. You prefer to stay in foreign lands to reap their fat lands instead of staying with fellow Filipinos who worked hard, suffered and sacrificed as poor Filipinos. YOURS WAS JUST TO ESCAPE THE SAD HARDSHIPS IN THE PHILIPPINES. -- DO NOT TELL US THAT YOU ARE BETTER THAN THE FILIPINO IDIOTS STAYING IN THE PHILIPPINES. We would rather find ways to seek allies from China and Russia if it will help Philippines improve than clinging to American principles that only provide more American interests than of Filipino interests...
