Busted: Trump said Sara Duterte can be a good senator? It’s another made up story!advertisement
Another article about the alleged developing relationship between President Rodrigo Duterte and US President-elect Donald Trump has been shared by Facebook page “Pres. Digong Duterte Solid Supporters.”
The article from socialinfoph.blogspot.com that was shared claims that Donald Trump commented that Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, President Duterte’s daughter, can make a good senator for the Philippines.
It says that the comment was made by Trump while he was in a conference. Trump was allegedly asked about his stand on Duterte’s ongoing war on drugs and Trump supposedly answered this with, “I really like how Duterte operates, in fact her daughter Sara can make a good senator, her genetics must be he same, the world is impressed by Duterte’s work and we can too be impressed by Sara, actually Sara can be better hundred times than Leila De Lima the mouthy lady.” The article then proceeded to discussing Sara Duterte’s accomplishments in politics.
However, the article actually came from the fake website thet1mes.com, which is included in Meme Buster’s list of fake and satire news sites that spreads made up stories or news.
In fact, we’ve busted several articles from this site, such as the hoaxes about De Lima buying a mansion in New York, Russian leader Vladimir Putin slamming the Liberal Party, Loida Nicolas Lewis being suspended from the US, and the hoax about African presidents calling Duterte their “hero,” which was shared by Duterte’s spokesperson Peter Tiu Laviña.
There has not been any official press conference attended by President-elect Trump where he talked about Sara Duterte or endorsed her for a senatorial position, as of writing.
