Duterte: China will help me stay in power

Chinese President Xi Jinping promised to protect President Rodrigo Duterte from any plan to remove him from office, the Philippine leader said on Tuesday, May 15.

"The assurances of Xi Jinping were very encouraging. 'We will not – ,' eh nandiyan naman sila (anyway they're there). 'We will not allow you to be taken out from your office, and we will not allow the Philippines to go to the dogs," Duterte said.

"Siguro kasi freely elected leader naman ako (Probably because I'm a freely elected leader anyway), it could be a very justified statement," said Duterte.
