Amid controversies on his war on drugs, President Duterte was applauded by the Filipinos when he stated the reason why he was there.
“Why am I here? I am here because I love my country and I love the Filipino people… What drove me to the presidency? Patriotism.”

“Kung walang bumubunggo nitong mga animal na ito, kawawa ang bayan,” Duterte added.

“Sabi ko  nga, I am willing to rot in jail for the Filipino. Do not keep on threatening or intimidating me,” Duetrte said.

“Wag tayo magbolahan… /Yung iba talaga diyang pinatay, na-salvage… Pero kung sinabi mong state-ordered killing… kalokohan,” The president added.

“kaya ako nagmumura kasi napaka-bobo naman nila (critics). Hindi ako galit sa kanila, but what I’m trying to say is I’m totally exasperated – that’s the word – na hindi nila alam ang batas that it is not a crime even for a civilian Filipino walking in the streets to say, ‘I hate the criminals, I hope they would die, I will kill them if a catch them.’ Perfectly alright. That’s in defense, that statement is in defense of my country and people,” Duterte said.
