Alejandrino was referring to corruption, illegal drugs and criminality, the oligarchy, tax evaders and smugglers.

He also said Duterte is exceptional who is not "afraid to lose his life, his honor, his presidency in pursuit of what he believes in. To protect his law-abiding countrymen and women, to build a new nation for our children and grandchildren."



According to him, Duterte is a man who has been underestimated. But in reality, he is "clever politician, a smart strategist, an awesome tactician. He has different strokes for different folks. He is capable of disarming his political rivals with charm and politeness only to swing a sledgehammer when needed."

Read his full post below:

DAVID IN BATTLE

No president of the Philippines before Rodrigo Duterte dared take on so many big problems simultaneously. He is fighting corruption, illegal drugs and criminality, the oligarchy, tax evaders and smugglers, to name the main ones. A David fighting so many Goliaths on so many fronts. It takes guts and Rodrigo Duterte has guts.

That is why makes Rodrigo exceptional. He is not afraid to lose his life, his honor, his presidency in pursuit of what he believes in. To protect his law-abiding countrymen and women, to build a new nation for our children and grandchildren.

He is ready to defy Satan because he believes in his God-given mission. He believes in putting the Filipino First in his dealings with foreign nations. He believes in saying what many Filipinos dare not say, whether it is to his people, the politicians, or to the church.

Like Heneral Antonio Luna, he is bold and brilliant. Like Andres Bonifacio, he is a Katipunero and a revolutionary. And despite his making fun of his own academic credentials, he has the intellect of a Jose Rizal.

He is a man who has been underestimated. Beneath that provincial look is a clever politician, a smart strategist, an awesome tactician. He has different strokes for different folks. He is capable of disarming his political rivals with charm and politeness only to swing a sledgehammer when needed.

Rodrigo is different because he doesn’t care for his job. Being president does not impress him. It is just a job he was elected to do and he intends to do it his way. Sorry na lang for his critics. They can say what they want but that will not divert him from his purpose. No other president is as focused as he is.

These are the qualities that make a great leader. FVR got it right when he asked me what I thought of Rodrigo being the next president. I said I didn’t know whether he wanted to be president. Before I knew it, FVR was on the plane to Davao to convince him to run.

Once Rodrigo made up his mind, I promised FVR I would do everything I could to help him win. FVR knew what I was talking about. He didn’t need to know the details. He left it up to me to work them out operating in the shadows as I had always done with previous presidents.

As I had predicted to FVR when he ran for the presidency, I also predicted Rodrigo would be the next president. How did I know? Ask the Good Lord. It is He who makes everything happen.
