Hu u? Duterte boasts of snubbing Lucio Tan, Andrew Tan on Election Day
When you’re the President of the Philippines,you can afford to snub anyone– bilyonaryos included.
Taipans Lucio Tan and Andrew Tan experienced what it was like to get a cold shoulder treatment from Duterte on Election Day last year.
Philippine Star columnist Boo Chanco said Duterte shared his snub of the Tans during his dinner with select opinion writers this week.
“He recalled that Lucio Tan and Megaworld’s Andrew Tan cooled their heels in Davao on Election Day because he refused to meet them,” Chanco said.
In a speech in Malacanang in August 2016, Duterte said he turned down campaign contributions from Lucio Tan and Andrew Tan even if it meant he had to run on a “shoestring budget.”
Duterte told the columnists during dinner that he will continue waging war on the elite because they “have abused the country all these years.”
“He will reveal one big scandalous case soon involving property,” Chanco said.
