The singer-composer explained in a Facebook post:

Sometimes I wish Digong never decided to run for president. He does not deserve all this hate coming from people who do not want to give him a chance to do what he says he will try to do to fix the nation.

There is just so much animosity. They say, he is divisive. What they don't realize is that they are the ones creating the gap.

I simply cannot fathom where all this anger and festering hatred is coming from. Whatever did he do for some to portray him like [Adolf] Hitler or [Cambodian revolutionary] Pol Pot?

Why are you so sure that he is bad for our country?

Cornejo, a resident of Davao City where he put up a successful bakeshop business, expressed dismay amid the hate and attack against the incoming head-of-state on social and traditional media.

Destructive news and negative criticisms against Duterte, who is yet to swear in as the 16th President of the Republic of the Philippines on June 30, continue despite the announcement that he will no longer hold interviews and press conferences, and would only release official statements through the government-owned television network.

Can you give the baffled "Habang May Buhay" singer an answer?
