Duterte on use of ‘troll’ army: I have followers (Manila Times)

Manila Times: Duterte on use of ‘troll’ army: I have followers. “PRESIDENT Rodrigo Duterte has denied a report that his administration was using government funds to hire people to defend him on social media even after his election victory. In a press conference after he delivered his State of the Nation Address on Monday, Duterte admitted paying online trolls but said this only happened during the campaign season and not after he was elected.”
