Aquino said that he expects a lot of fake news and propaganda against him in the upcoming May 2019 elections.

Hindi naman nawawala ang fake news sa akin, at titindi pa ang pagbaha ng paninira ngayong palapit na ang halalan. (We’ve always been the subject of fake news, and we expect this to get worse when the elections draw near),” Aquino said.

Ngunit may mga mas mahalgang isyu ang mga Pilipino na kailangan pang solusyunan, tulad ng matinding pagtaas ng presyo ng bilihin. (But Filipinos are still faced with so many important issues, like the current inflation and the rising prices of goods, and we need to find solutions for these),” said the senator.

He said that he will work hard to pursue legislative reforms aimed at ensuring the welfare of the Filipino masses.

Gusto ko lang magtrabaho at magsulong ng mga reporma na makakatulong sa pamilyang Pilipino. (I just want to work and pursue reforms that would help the Filipino family),” said Aquino.

Recently, several Facebook groups have posted fake quotes and misinformation about Aquino seemingly designed to deceive the public as they were placed beside logos of legitimate news organizations.

According to Aquino, these legitimate news organizations have already called out the quotes and photos as fake.

Baka sa 80 percent na fake news na nakikita ng mga Pilipino, malaki ang porsyento diyan tungkol sa akin, (I think 80 percent of the fake news that Filipinos see is about me),” the senator joked.

Maging mapagbantay tayo sa pekeng balita at paglilinlang sa social media. Ang maaasahan niyo naman sa akin ay ang patuloy kong pagtrabaho sa mga reporma natin sa Senado, lalo na sa edukasyon, (Let us be vigilant against fake news and deception on social media. Rest assured I will continue my job and pursue reforms here in the Senate, especially in the area of education),” the senator said.
