CLAIM: Duterte finally endorses Vice-President Leni Robredo!

A 29-second video being widely shared on social media, shows a person speaking at a campaign rally.  He sounded like President Rodrigo Duterte.

Captions to the video read:

    “Duterte finally endorses Vice-President Leni Robredo!”
    “President Duterte endorse Leni Robredo”
    “Duterte endorsed Leni. Unbelievable!”

This is FALSE.

While the face and identity of the man on the video cannot be ascertained, PressOne.PH was able to obtain another video of the speech of “Rodrigo Duterte” clearly showing the face of the person on the video.

It turns out that the man that sounded like the president was Albay 2nd district Board Member Jun Alegre who is a known impersonator of the president.
