fitness dating Senator Leila de Lima expects Filipinos in the United States, who account for half of the over $20 billlion annual remittances, would bear the brunt of President Rodrigo Duterte’s decision to cut military and economic ties with with the US.
Nordjylland “Ilang mga Pilipino, kabilang na mga OFWs, ang nasa China at Russia? Ilang mga Pilipino ang nasa ibang bansa, hindi lang sa US? If you position yourself as the single third world country in the company of two huge, but isolated nations, who do you go to for help if there are OFWs and other Filipinos in trouble in those other countries? ” asked de Lima.
Kristiansund “Palagay mo kaya mo mag-isa? Palagay mo tutulungan ka lagi ng China at Russia? Palagay mo they are even in a position to help you under most circumstances?” she added.

She said: “I’m not only talking about material aid, but in terms of leverage and negotiating power with other countries. It isn’t you who suffers, Mr. President, it is the Filipino people. By all means, make friends! But stop making yourself the enemy of the world!”
For de Lima, Duterte’s decision to cut ties with the US just because he held a grudge against the Americans for his US visa application was too petty.
”Oo nga siguro, mas mahirap makakuha ng visa sa mga bansang katulad ng US, pero iyon ay dahil may kaakibat na pangakong mas magandang buhay, hindi pamumuhay na ikaw ay ituturing na basura o less than human. Parang illegal recruiter lang ‘yan, if it’s too easy and if it sounds too good to be true, malamang kapahamakan at pang-aapi ang naghihintay sa’yo diyan,” said de Lima.
She said it was “saddening, frightening and highly incensing” for Duterte to put his “bitterness” first before the country’s interest.
” Biruin mo, na-deny ka lang ng US visa noon hindi ka lang naka-move on, itinanim mo pa ang bitterness mo nang ilang taon hanggang sa maging Presidente ka at magamit mo ang posisyon mo para gumanti sa pakiramdam mo ay atraso sa’yo. Sounds familiar? It does to me, painfully and personally familiar,” said de Lima,
