On July 25, the opposition senator said the SONA sounded like a campaign speech.

“Overall, the Sona sounded like a campaign speech that only sycophants and the gullible would appreciate,” Trillanes said in a statement.

Trillanes added the irony of Duterte who spelled his hate towards corruption but never launched any anti-corruption program in the past year.

He has also highlighted the release of ex-President GMA and the heroes burial of Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

"Worse, he released GMA (Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo) and buried Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, and, by the way, he has also admitted that he used to be corrupt when he was mayor.”

On the other hand, Duterte fired one of his cabinet secretaries and numerous other government officials over mere allegations of corruption.

He has also launched Hotline 8888 to receive public complaints against corruption, abuse, and negligent actions of public officials, officers, offices, and employees.
