“‎Maybe sila kasi sa Luzon okay lang sila eh. But ilagay mo ‘to dito sa Mindanao? Make him establish a residence here in Marawi and in Zamboanga and Jolo, tingnan natin. Madali lang kasi magdaldal, magpapogi. It’s very easy to, you know, criticize,” he added.

“Mabawi naman, ma’am. Alam man ninyo ‘yan? Meron na except for one or two buildings there. Snipers. Iyon lang ang tatapusin. But ang sundalo, they’re there in Marawi na.So until now, pati nga bata tinamaan eh. Pero let us not make this a joke na ganito lang kasimple ang (problema),” stated Duterte.
