NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – Of what use are your millions of dollars if you don’t have a country to call your own? Well, that’s exactly what Filipino American millionaire Loida Nicolas-Lewis is faced with right now after she publicly called for the resignation of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte so that VP Leni Robredo can take over.
Nicolas-Lewis is a known supporter of the candidacy of Mar Roxas who lost the election to Duterte, and Robredo.
By calling for the resignation of Duterte, many elements in the Philippines are accusing her of ‘sedition,’ and have asked that she be declared a persona non grata and stripped of her Philippine citizenship.
On the other hand, U.S. President-elect Donald Trump who has endorsed Duterte’s administration is in the process of revoking Nicolas-Lewis’ American citizenship for interfering in the affairs of a foreign nation (the Philippines). Trump dislikes the Filipina millionaire because she actively campaigned for Hillary Clinton and supported the Obama administration.
So what’s next for Nicolas-Lewis?
In a phone call with The Adobo Chronicles today, she indicated that she is planning to purchase a beachfront property in the Bahamas. Good thing she has the millions of dollars for it. From dual citizen to a millionaire refugee she will be!
