- Jaydee Carag, an Eat Bulaga contestant, wowed the crowd after saying he wants to be a soldier so he can combat China
- Human Rights Activist Francis Baraan says that Duterte has ‘no balls’
During Eat Bulaga‘s That’s My Boy! segment, one of the contestants had people laughing when host Pia Guanio asked him what his dream was.
Jaydee Carag, a six-year-old boy from Antipolo City, was asked by Guanio what he wanted to be when he grew up.
Jaydee said he wanted to be a soldier so that he could go up against China.
“Para talunin ang China,” said Jaydee.
“Bakit gusto mong talunin ang China?” Guanio asked.
Jaydee replied, “Para ‘di nila makuha dagat natin.”
Host Ryzza Mae Dizon then asked what would Jaydee do if he became a soldier.
Jaydee said that he would take pride in being a Filipino. “Ipagmamalaki ang Pilipinas.”
The crowd was pleased with the boy’s answer, as was human rights activist Francis Baraan IV, who posted the entire thing on his Twitter account.
“Even kids these days don’t approve of the giving away of PH properties by the coward Duterte to China. Buti pa ‘tong bata may bayag; si Duterte wala!” tweeted Baraan.
Pia: Ano gusto mo gawin pag laki mo?
Bata: Para talunin ang China. Para 'di nila makuha dagat natin.

Back in 2016, an international tribunal in The Hague concluded that the West Philippine Sea is exclusively for the Philippines, which did not sit well with China.
China said that the exclusive zone belongs to them historically and has prevented the Philippines from exploring the area in an effort to extract gas and oil.
During President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit to China, he apparently brought up the ruling to Xi Jinping, and did get anything out of it.
According to Duterte, Xi told him, “We will not budge.”
Xi also told Duterte that he did not want to discuss the 2016 ruling because the sea has always been China’s property.
Duterte said he replied by saying, ‘Well, I will not, maybe, insist on your answer now. I am not satisfied with your answer, but I will not ask for any other answer. I’ll just remain where I am, where I started considering that you are under stress by the incidents in Hong Kong.'”
Duterte has been seen as too friendly when it comes to China, which makes the public question his courage and loyalty to the country.
