Baka nasa kabilang 3% kayo? Duterte rubs it in the face of his loud but miniscule critics
President Rodrigo Duterte had one of his most feel good vibe in his fourth State of the Nation Address.
Who wouldn’t be? He single-handedly wiped out the opposition in the recent senatorial elections and his approval rating is sky-high. No wonder he took the grand stage of the SONA to rub it in the faces of his critics who have stayed at a miniscule three percent since 2016.
“Let me begin by extending my hand in gratitude to all who kept faith with me in our most trying times. Numbers speak a thousand words and tell a hundred tales. But the landslide victory of the Administration candidates as well as the latest survey results shows that my disapproval rating is three percent,” said Duterte in his speech.
“I hope that the members of Congress — sana hindi kayo included sa three percent inspires me with determination to pursue relentlessly what we have started at the start of my administration,” he added.
Duterte promised he would end his term “fighting.”
“Few men imbued with the will and the courage to do what he believes is right and just and whatever be the opposition in terms of numbers and noise, makes a majority. For it is not the eagle in the fight but the fight in the eagle that matters,” said Duterte.
