Netizens react to Missosology questioning VP Leni Robredo’s foreign trips

In a now-deleted tweet, the Missosology official Twitter account questioned Robredo’s recent travels abroad.

Beauty pageant website Missosology apologized for attacking former vice president Leni Robredo’s foreign trips.

In a now-deleted tweet, the Missosology official Twitter account questioned Robredo’s recent travels abroad.

“My question is who paid for her foreign trips while she was in the government?” the account asked on May 2 before getting deleted following backlash.

The account then issued an apology but no one bought it.

Netizens believe whoever handled the account made the mistake of not switching to a burner.

Questions about Robredo’s trips started with Wilhelmina Junghan commenting on her post.

” Are you on a Government working trip or just a fun travel (WITH FAMILY) paid for by FILIPINO taxpayers?” she asked before accusing Robredo of mishandling funds.

However, many questioned the account’s authenticity.

Robredo defended herself, saying, “Not one of my foreign trips was ever charged to the government.”

The Department of Foreign Affairs provides recommendations regarding the type of visit a Head of State should make when visiting a country. These recommendations may fall under the categories of a state visit, official visit, or working visit.

Robredo served as vice president for six years, receiving an annual budget of less than one billion Philippine pesos.

Despite this limited funding, the Office of the Vice President (OVP) has played an active role in providing services across the country through various projects and initiatives.

Among these were the ‘Angat Buhay’ program, which aimed to alleviate poverty and has since become a non-governmental organization, and the ‘Bayanihan e-Konsulta’ program, a free teleconsultation service.
