Presidential Communications Office (PCO) Secretary Martin Andanar said the communication department of Malacanang has strategies to counter foreign negative press but he refused to reveal them. ”I cannot really divulge the strategies because I don’t also want the opposition to see our strategies. But we are already executing some and we will execute more,” the PCO chief said.
Amid the negative media reports and criticisms hurled against the Duterte administration, Andanar believed that “the truth will set us free.”
”We are appealing for the patriotism and nationalism of the Filipino,” he said.
President Rodrigo Duterte lived up to his election campaign promises to fight corruption, criminality and illegal drugs. Most of the Filipinos have embraced President Duterte’s leadership based on recent surveys despite some minor groups criticizing his war on drugs.
