Emilio Aguinaldo who?
WHO is “Emilio Aguinaldo?”
Presidential candidate Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday evaded the question when asked who was his major campaign contributor during the third and final presidential debate in Pangasinan.
“Nasa bukid, ma’am,” Duterte answered when asked during the “Fast Talk” segment of the debate.
But moderator and ABS-CBN anchor Karen Davila pressed the tough-talking mayor for an answer.
“Emilio Aguinaldo,” he answered.
Duterte has repeatedly said in previous speeches that he would not receive campaign donations from people with vested interest in government.
He said he does not want to have a debt of gratitude to these people if he wins the presidency.
