Duterte denies link to Cambridge Analytica
President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday, April 13, denied any connection to Cambridge Aanalytica, a British political consultancy firm currently involved in a Facebook data scandal. The president addressed the issue after the reports that its parent company had helped his election campaign in 2016.
“Wala akong alam. Hindi ko man kilala ‘yan,” the President said at a press briefing in Davao City after his arrival from a working visit to China.
“Saka bakit ako magbabayad sa mga ugok na Cambridge ang magtrabaho para sa kampanya ko? Lalo akong matalo niyan,” he added.
