“Magandang araw po, lalo na sa lahat ng Volunteers for Duterte sa pagbabago ng ating gobyerno. Inuulit ko po ang aking pangako sa inyo, na yung pang kabuhayan, economic side, ‘yung pagkain natin, lalo na sa dumadating na panahon ng El Niño, I have to worry about food that is available, and affordable. Mga kaibigan, susubukan ko po lahat ng aking makakaya para maabot natin ang (may remedy) sa ating pagkain and ekonomiya at higit sa lahat po, yung mapayapa na Pilipinas.
