Senator Imee Marcos as the Only Supporter
In one of President Rodrigo Duterte’s speeches, he said that when he ran for President, he had no supporters at all. Except for Senator Imee Marcos. However, in his Statement of Contributions and Expenditures, he didn’t list her as among his contributors. Later, he also said that he’s never politically involved with the Marcoses despite his daughter running as Bongbong Marcos’ VP in the May 2022 elections.
The Senator Asks PRRD for Help
Senator Marcos recently discloses that her family sents messages to President Duterte to seek his help and endorsement for her brother. Former Senator Bongbong Marcos’ presidential bid is at its greatest advantage when endorsed by the Filipino leader.
Loyal to the President
Senator Imee added that her family is loyal to the president. The BBM-Sara Uniteam also vows to continue the projects of President Duterte. There might be some understandings in the past but it seems that all those negativity has been sorted out.
