“According to SC, the DFA, the VFA is an executive agreement, hindi treaty. So start packing your things. Start packing your things and get out of my country.” Duterte said.
“You want to come back here? You pay us. You want bases here? Pay us. transaction na lang tayo. Pera-pera na lang tayo mabuti pa. Wala namang giyera ngayon, why would I allow you here?” Duterte said.
Earlier, after the US aid agency cut off their assistance to the Philippines, President Duterte said that the US should “prepare for the repeal or abrogation” of the VFA.
“We are, we are glad that we are freed from proving anything to the United States. We do not need the money. Bye-bye America and work on the protocols that would eventually move you out from the Philippines. You know, tit for tat. If you know this, if you can do this, so do we. It ain’t a one-way traffic,” he said
