The businessman said that unlike “hypocrite” politikos, he has done his share to improve people’s lives.
“Kayong mga politikong mga ipokrito, mag-isip-isip kayo. Wag plataporma ang ilabas niyo. ‘Pag sinabi kong nagawa, yung direkta sa tao ah,” he said, showcasing his company’s outreach projects through Pitmaster Cares Foundation.
“Kami nagpapakain ng tao, nagpapagamot ng tao. Kayo anong ginagawa niyo? Gagawa kayo ng batas tapos hindi niyo sinusunod,” Ang added.
