Donald Trump Apologizes To Filipinos For ‘Terrorist’ Comment

image.jpegNEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – In a rare public display of vulnerability and fear, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump apologized to the Filipino people for his comment linking their country to terrorism.

In a recent anti-immigration speech in Maine, Trump has lumped the Philippines among “terrorist nations” from where people should be denied entry to the United States.

Trump, in a statement released today, said that his campaign interns fed him the wrong information, leading him to believe that the entire Philippines was a Muslim country and that it was one of the Republics located in the Middle East.

Many believe that the apology was part of the Trump campaign’s damage control efforts to regain the millions of potential Filipino American votes the candidate may have lost as a result of his ‘terrorist’ comment.

Others, however, think that what prompted Trump to finally apologize was Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte’s challenge to engage the Republican candidate to a fistfight. That may be too much for Trump to handle.

      1. What do you mean majority in the Philippines are Muslim..and if you think the president now is not doing anything about those ASG you are wrong because he ordered the AFP to eradicate them

        You have to live in this country to know more about the Philippines before justifying that Filipinos are terrorist.. I live in the northern part of the Philippines and for your information majority here are Christians…

        It is so wrong to judge a country/ actually your birth country when in fact you haven’t lived here for years.. Just too bad you are a Filipina and yet it is ok with you to be called “animal”…

        Trump already apologized for that being fed the wrong information as he said.. I hope you will come back and visit other parts your own birth country too.. I hope someday you will realize that Filipinos shouldn’t be called “animals” and not to look down on Filipinos.. this country where you came from.. we are humans and we are not animals.. we are not “terrorists” either.. Christians here are not being outnumbered by Muslims…

      2. U speak by ur tongue with no sense. FYI, Muslims are still a minority as far as population in the PH is concerned. At di lahat ng Muslim doon ay masama tulad ng iniisip at sinasabi mo, although may mga grupong bandido, ang mga pinoy ay hindi kasing sama ng sinasabi mo, Tulad ka rin ni Trump, kulang ka sa kaalaman, nagsasalita ng wlang alam, Pinay ka nga ba? Kung Pinay ka sagutin mo ito ng Tagalog ng mas maiintidihan ng makakabasa, at bka tama pa spelling mo kung Tagalog ok?

      4. I think that, for a person who claims to have lived in the US for very long, you are a disappointment. It may be the language barrier, or it may be something you drank while writing this. Either way, you have no clear idea what is going on in your country, and for you to support Trump is ludicrous and foolish. You attempted to speak smart of an idiot, that is just one of your mistakes. Your first mistake is most probably NOT listening in school.

        for an old woman like you, i’m surprised you are not so keen to read REAL news from philippines. I was just 6 yrs old when 9/11 happened, its a big news in our home, and i am very much aware that PH government send troops in middle east to support US in retaliating al-qaeda. PH is a noncombatant, poor, and small country but it helps contrary to what you’ve said.

    1. hold your horses… the Animals he was pertaining to are the Terrorists in any country that has one…. we have to admit that there are terrorists in the Philippines… he didn’t stereotype and mean ALL OF US are terrorist or animals… his goal is for every one in the U.S. to be safe because nowadays we really don’t know who is entering the U.S., regardless. i’d be willing to be vetted if it all means to help reassure and secure the U.S. I wouldn’t take it too personally… I’d feel much safer if everyone be vetted for clearance and reassurance… I’d rather have a tactless speaker but a doer, than a sweet talker but a negligent, lying doer.

    2. You’re right on! Liberal media and democrats like to twist things around for their own sick agenda. Many Filipinos support Trump not because he’s an ideal candidate, but because he’s more human than crooked, lying Hillary. I’ve been living here in the U.S for 38 years and I’ve seen how liberal media are so bias in their views and reporting. If a republican had done what Hillary had done, that person would had been in prison or executed already. There are many Filipinos who are not fooled by this party who will do everything and anything to win. I’ve watched Trump’s video 5-6 times to make sure I didn’t misunderstand what said re: when mention Philippines and even wrote down what he said, and here it is: A prominent illegal resident from the Philippines was convicted from plotting to join Al Qaeda and Taliban in order to kill many Americans as possible. And that’s exactly what he said. When he mentioned terrorist nations, he didn’t say Philippines specifically nor did he say that all Filipinos are terrorists. And if Filipinos think for a moment rather than just resharing other people’s post, there are terrorist groups in the southern part of the Philippines, one led by Abu Sayaf (not sure if this is how it’s spelled) who have killed Christians (missionaries) and foreigners especially Americans
      and even fellow Filipinos who don’t agree with views or ways of thinking and beliefs. Wake up people!

  3. Donald Trump apologized to the Filipinos.
    Filipinos are forgiving people when a trespasser apologizes.
    Forgiveness is one of good values of the Filipinos.
    Philippines is a Christian nation and a big number of majority are Christians. President Duterte is waging war against Abu Sayyaf, an Islamic Separatist Group and outlaws in Southern Philippines.

    1. Islam is older than Christianity in the Philippines when Magellan came and introduced it. Thanks God he came so the Filipinos were christianized, even though he came to enslave the Filipinos, I’m so grateful that God moves His Spirit in an unusual way sometimes, as He is the Mighty God, the Alpha and Omega, the King of the universe, there is no other gods but HIM alone, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob… the God of the Christians and the Jewish people.
