In a press conference held Sunday, former TV5 anchor and now Presidential Communications Office Secretary Martin Andanar said that Duterte's speech "will be a very powerful speech that will awaken the patriot in every Filipino."
"When I read the speech, ayaw ko pong mag-exaggerate pero the first time I read the speech, it made me cry. Ganoon po kaganda, ganoon po ka makabagbag-damdamin iyong speech ng Pangulo natin," he said, adding that it has been revised at least 10 times and is expected to last for at least 38 minutes.
