Miss Universe Philippines 2017 Rachel Peters, unlike Mariel De Leon who’s critical with the government, expressed that the people should trust the government and President Rodrigo Duterte.
In a press conference last May at Villa del Rey in the Camarines Sur Water Sports Complex (CWC) the media asked the beauty queen about the appointment of Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson.
Rachel Peters who’s a Filipino-British said that the people should be given Mocha a ‘chance’ to prove herself worthy for the position that President Duterte gave to her.
Today, as we celebrate our 119th Independence Day, let us honor and remember all the Filipinos who have fought, sacrificed and who have given their all for our country. Let’s also continue to support and pray for our brave soldiers who are fighting to protect our country even today, in Marawi. 💙 As a nation we must work together to provide peace and the strength for each other to achieve the stability in our lives, that we all deserve and strive for. ❤️ I am a proud Filipina and feel so grateful everyday for the opportunity to be representing this beautiful country I call home on the Miss Universe stage soon. 💛 Mabuhay ang Pilipinas! 🇵🇭🌟 Gown by @albertandrada
She believed that the people should support the President’s decision and ‘stand behind him’
“Well, she hasn’t started yet. And so, I believe everyone should be given a chance. We should stand behind President Duterte, You cannot judge a book by its cover, (That is) something my parents taught me that is still in my mind,” Peters said.
“we should trust in our President and trust that it’s he (who) knows what is best for our country.” she added.
