Aquino comments that the number of drug users had not changed since when he left the presidency last year. Despite the Du30 administration’s deadly campaign against illegal drugs, it seems nothing happened, in the drug war he added. The President responds; Go ahead, go into the illegal drug trade, I will cut your head off. What are you saying? You fool. This feud is very timely for Aquino’s rival, Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against his VP bet, Leni Robredo.

Aquino’s Ties with Suspected Drug Lords
Du30 slammed Aquino and former Interior secretary Mar Roxas for their close relations with Daanbantayan, Cebu mayor, and retired police general Vicente Loot. They were previously identified as a protector of drug lords. However, the President defended Aquino over usurpation and graft raps in connection with the 2015 Mamasapano clash.
Drug War Statistics
Duterte added that in terms of drug haul, his administration had already seized about nearly the same volume as Aquino’s performance during his whole presidential term. “In all of his six years, he was only able to seize or catch about 3,045 kilos of shabu. While on my part, in just one year, I have already seized about 2,000. Nearly 3,000 which is his entire six years.”
Defenses on Record
The truth on the President’s drug war comes out from the mouth of his allies as per actual data. Bongbong Marcos and former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo are pro-administration politicians reputed the claims of his detractors. Statistics don’t lie. It is also proven by BBC that most of the President’s critics are out of tune. Crimes are down by 10 percent and that’s the ultimate fact.
Bongbong Marcos – Ex-Pnoy Fight
Pnoy’s drug war comments are a form of attacks against the President – just like when Bongbong Marcos looks down on EDSA. The President can’t just let it pass. This revives the Marcos-Aquino rivalry through Du30. Just in time for the upcoming recount on Marcos’ protest against Aquino’s VP bet, Leni Robredo. This is expected to continue as the electoral protest resumes.
