President Rodrigo Duterte ridiculed Communist Party of the Philippines founder Jose Maria Sison.

According to the President, Sison is not an “ideological poltergeist” who continues to blabber about his convictions.

Duterte said that he is not insecure because he was able to put himself in his post, from being a mayor of Davao City to being the president of the country.

President Duterte added that Sison should stop portraying him as the villain because the victim in the recent attack in Davao del Norte was from military, and that the CPP-NPA-NDF violated the existing ceasefire.
