Donald Trump, Panfilo Lacson Launch Presidential Bids

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) President Trump kicked off his re-election campaign by railing against the Russia inquiry and attacking the media. 

Almost simultaneously, Sentator Panfilo Lacson launched his 2020 bid to succeed President Rodrigo Duterte. In contrast, Lacson all but sided with the media by railing against China over the collision of a Chinese vessel and a Philippine fishing boat off the coast of disputed territory in the West Philippine Sea.

Lacson wants Trump to honor the U.S. Defense Treaty with the Philippines in dealing with China in this maritime incident.
