Duterte on Bong Go: Bata-bata ito ni Xi Jinping!
Are there more similarities between Chinese President Xi Jinping and Special Assistant to the President Christopher “Bong” Go apart from their Chinese blood?
Duterte on Monday hinted that Xi is also Go’s boss as he pushed anew for his aide’s senatorial bid.
In a speech at the Department of Foreign Affairs’ celebration of its 120th anniversary, Duterte recalled meeting with American military officials when he was mayor of Davao City.
In the middle of his anecdote, Duterte mentioned Go and got distracted.
“Nasaan na ba si Senator Go? Pakilala ka nga para manalo ka. Senator Go. Ayan. Iboto na lang ninyo, he said.
Duterte joked that Go already made a “sacrifice” by producing signages bearing his name.
“Eh nag-sakripisyo na rin nag-display diyan o, sa likod. Tumindig ka naman? Bata-bata ito ni Xi Jinping eh,” he said.
Duterte no longer elaborated on his statement.

‘Halata naman masyado’: Duterte teases Bong Go about targeting Presidency
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday teased his longtime aide and now Senator Christopher “Bong” Go about supposedly having aspirations for the presidency, noting how the neophyte legislator frequently visits fire victims.
“Maybe he wants to be President, kasi lahat ng sunog nandun siya (because he’s always visiting fire victims),” Duterte said in a speech before newly-appointed government officials.
“Halata man masyado. Nauuna kapa sa… eh wala pang sunog nandun ka, nandun kana eh. Ikaw ata tiga-sindi. Nauna kapa dun sa bumbero. ‘Wag mo masyadong sobrahan baka mahalata,” he added.
(It’s pretty obvious. You’re ahead of the… you’re already there even there’s no fire yet. Maybe you’re the one igniting it. You arrive way before firefighters. Don’t do it too much or they might notice it.)
Go rose to political limelight from being Duterte’s special assistant. He earned a seat in the Senate and ranked third in the May 2019 midterm elections, preceded only by veteran Senators Cynthia Villar and Grace Poe.
