VP Robredo, prays for Pres. Duterte despite political clash

 Vice President Leni Robredo said on Monday that she prays for President Rodrigo Duterte amid the coronavirus pandemic in an interview in G3 San Diego over instagram.

"Yes, Always, I always pray for him beacuse his success is success for our country," Robredo said.

Robredo constantly prays for wisdom for Duterte, "Iyong parati ko hinihingi wisdom para sa presidente, na gabayan siya, bigyan siyabng wisdom para makapagdesisyon ng maayos ng maayos."

The country’s top two leaders have repeatedly clashed over the government’s supposed inadequate COVID-19 response.

Robredo has openly criticized the administration’s mishandling of the health crisis, citing the dearth of a cohesive plan, poor contract tracing, and other missteps that resulted within the Philippines having the foremost number of COVID-19 cases among Southeast Asian countries. 

Duterte asked her “not to feature fuel to the fire” because it would result in the destruction of the government, but Robredo said it's her duty as a Filipino to call out the lapses to boost the government’s COVID-19 response.
