As numerous supporters of President Rodrigo Duterte have been backing his presidential bid, Manila mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso asserted on Saturday that DDS, a term coined by Duterte devotees to mean Duterte Diehard Supporters, now stands for “Domagoso Diehard Supporters.”

“Recently, yung mga DDS, nagsusuporta na din sa atin,” the presidential aspirant said in a press conference following the gathering wherein Duterte supporters had guaranteed their support for Moreno.

“Kaya nga nagkakabiruan kami minsan, pag nagke-kwentuhan kami, ang ibig sabihin ng DDS is Domagoso Diehard Supporters,” the mayor jested.

Moreno also received the formal manifest of support from the officers and members of the Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte National Executive Coordinating Committee on the same day.

Meanwhile, Duterte has yet to endorse any of the presidential candidates in the upcoming May 2022 elections.
