MANILA, Philippines – Trusted by practically all Filipinos, President Rodrigo Duterte delivered on Monday, July 25, his first State of the Nation Address (SONA), making major policy pronouncements on the peace negotiations, the anti-drug war, income tax reform, and transportation, Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, members of the Senate, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and the members of the House of Representatives, Vice President Maria Leonor Robredo, President Fidel V. Pati yung tawag nilang "basura", yun yung street ano. Gusto niyo, sabihin niyo, puntahan natin, I’ll give you the names. Ang problema nito, yung mga railway na ito [Hindi na ito kasali diyan. Ramos, President Joseph Estrada, President Arroyo, Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno, and justices of Supreme Court, His Excellency Papal Nuncio and members of the diplomatic corps. I’ll show you the intelligence paper pero give me the guarantee na may magawain ka. Huwag kayong maniwala dito] Two-thirds of these are mine, the other third is yung --- correct yung grammar ko, ayaw lang nila. Problema nito, and you must agree with me, that the rails are quite aged. Alam mo sabi ko, unahan na natin itong Congress, puro mayayabang ang mga nandiyan. As a matter of fact, itong Philippine Charity Sweepstakes, binaboy ‘yan ng mga sindikato pati ‘yung mga, ‘yung mga gangster dito na big time sa Pilipinas.‘Yung lotto, sinakyan nila ng jueteng, pero sila rin ang humawak and they were granted that right by previous government. Tapos, I had a hard time looking for guys to run it. Nauna si Sid, and others but sila Morente and of course Agudo, puro ano ‘yan. I know there are a lot of good men pero sabi ko, hindi ko sila kilala. Pareho lang tayo nasa trabahante ng gobyerno, where all of us are just paid by government, by the people to protect them. We are workers of government paid by the people because we are supposed to maintain the integrity of this Republic.‘Yan lang naman ang trabaho natin, to protect them. And I could not find it in the civilian sector because I doubted their integrity and everything. Then another one, gusto ko talagang berdugo si Alex Balutan, I assigned him doon sa Bureau of Penitentiary, pero I changed my mind because kailangan ko mas berdugo dito because itong kabila na ito, we were losing billions of pesos a year in taxes na magamit ng Pilipino. You might really be good, honest, and everything but the fact is I could not build a good rapport with you because I do not know you. So ‘yung along the way, I have been mayor for 23 years now, Davao City. So sila si General Tabaquero and all, and I’ve been asking your -- Sinong mag-retire ngayon sir? Sabi ko na ano, I was asking him kung saan ‘yung probinsya niya, bisaya siya eh. Kasi lahat ng mga military mag-retire, automatic sa gobyerno. Sabi ni Bong, aide ko, kung asawa mo nasa Baguio, doon ka na lang sa Camp John Hay. Talagang malakas ako doon sa—Unang una, ang tatay ko, military. And second because, I could not have succeeded in making Davao peaceful and known na maganda na assignment, Davao City, because we, walang superstar doon. And so, for all of the years, ‘yung sabi nila, ako politiko lang ako, huwag ninyo akong pagdudahan because I can cross the ideological border. Because actually, while I build a strong army, my job is not really na hanggang tingin lang diyan. “Okay dito giyera tayo, dito tayo, peace tayo dito.” My job under the Constitution is to look for a peaceful way of settling disputes so we can live together.

We cannot move forward if we allow the past to pull us back. That is why I will not waste precious time dwelling on the sins of the past or blaming those who are perceived to be responsible for the mess that we are in and suffering from. Because I’ll give you the name, I’ll give you the country. Most of the rails maybe, doon pa yan sa panahon ni Marcos, Imelda. Ngayon, sabi ni Tugade, pagbigay sa akin sabi ko '40 to 60 kilometers per hour.' Sabi ko, ‘Art, sigurado ka maka-hold ang rail niyan? Sixty kilometers per hour and you are pulling something that’s heavy. Specifically for the LRT, the operating hours shall be extended from to p.m., so marami pang mga bata ang uuwi niyan.
Lest I be misunderstood, let me say clearly, that those who betrayed the people’s trust shall not go unpunished and they will have their day in Court. Tapos umalis ka, kunin mo doon sa tindahan yung bag o package.’ Nasaan yung mga nakikita ng media na... Baka maputol ‘yan mag diretso ang train sa Cavite.' [laughter] Diretso ng Cavite, mulipad doon kay Tolentino. When it really moves --- mawala ng ano--- it moves with a speed at a heavy thing at a great speed, ang hirap mong... [applause] And to absorb more passengers, delays in the procurement of additional trains shall be addressed soonest.
