MAKATI CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – In the U.S., presidential candidate Donald Trump’s grand plan to curb illegal immigration is to build a great wall along the southern border with Mexico. In the Philippines, Vice President Jojo Binay, candidate for president in the 2016 elections, has a grand plan to end poverty in his country.

The Philippines is known for the wide gap between the rich and the poor, and nowhere is it more evident than in the Vice President’s own city of Makati. (Binay and his wife Elenita are ex-mayors of Makati and their son Junjun is the current, albeit suspended mayor).

In his plan, unveiled today at the Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati, Binay says he will erect giant billboards all over the country to hide the squatter shanties that are practically obliterating the beautiful skyline of progressive cities, including Makati.

“If we can’t lick ’em, then we should join ’em,” Binay said as he showed a model of what Makati’s skyline will look like with giant billboards hiding the squatter shanties from view. He said the cost of the building the  billboards will be offset by the rent to be paid for by the advertising companies.
