The NY University Alumna at that point denounced the critics of President Duterte, who according to her, disparage the president for the way in which the latter handles China and probed who among the critics and the ASEAN leaders are more believable.

"So kanino kami maniniwala? Sa inyo na di man lang leader ng sarili ninyong barangay, o sa leaders ng ASEAN?", Krizette said. .

Below is her full Facebook post:


"Yung absent ka lagi pero ikaw pa rin ang valedictorian nang walang ka effort effort.

Singapore PM Lee Hsien Loong, at the ASEAN Summit, just designated PH as the coordinator for ASEAN - China dialogue relations moving forward.

What does this say about how world leaders, how ASEAN leaders, view Duterte's diplomatic skills? They want him to coordinate the dialogue between China and the rest of ASEAN. Him, whom his own countrymen mock for the way he handles China, is being asked to coordinate and head the convo between China and the rest of ASEAN.

So kanino kami maniniwala? Sa inyo na di man lang leader ng sarili ninyong barangay, o sa leaders ng ASEAN?

Yan ang real abilidad, friends. Lupig sila."
