Watch: Pres. Duterte Clarifies VP Leni's ICAD Position and Why She Cannot Trust Her Because of Her Mouth


The tough-talking President of the Philippines, Pres. Rody Duterte clarified to the media that although Vice Pres. Leni Robredo was appointed as co-chairman of ICAD she will never be part of the Cabinet because she cannot trust the VP.


Pres. Duterte clarified during a press briefing the reasons why she cannot trust the Vice President because of his mouth, since the day she was appointed as co-chair, she keeps on opening his mouth without thinking first.



The President noted that as of the moment he did not appoint VP Leni as a member of the Cabinet although the President announced earlier that once VP Leni could be appointed as anti-drug czar she will be part of the Cabinet but because of his constant revelations on the media about sensitive information she cannot be trusted.

VP Leni Robredo was appointed by Pres. Rody Duterte as co-chair of Inter-Agency Committee on Anti-Illegal Drugs (ICAD) last October 31 and later the Vice President accepted the position as ICAD co-chairperson.

Presidential Spokesman Salvador Panelo also noted that the position of the Vice President is not a Cabinet Level position.

Pres. Duterte would not longer appoint Vice Pres. Leni Robredo to his Cabinet due to the latter's supposed "missteps" during her first 2 weeks as drug czar.



The President viewed as slip-ups Robredo's consultations with various organizations and people critical of the government's was on dr*gs; her request to unlimited access to information on the drug war; and her "tendency" to share confidential information, Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo said.

Duterte earlier warned Robredo that he would fire her as co-chair of the ICAD if she revealed classified government matters to foreign entities.

“She has talked with certain institutions and people that are supposed to be enemies of the state. To the mind of the President, that is a dangerous sign. You may not be doing it purposely but delikado (it’s dangerous),” Panelo said.
