VLOG 2 2020: Senator Imee Marcos at the distribution of financial
assistance for rice farms of Laoag
Giving Assistance to the Farmers in Laoag
Senator Imee Marcos never gets tired traveling nationwide to inspire and give assistance to the masses. This time, she’s at the Centennial Arena Laoag City to distribute Php 5,000 Pesos each to the farmers who suffer losses from the deteriorating prices of rice. She acknowledges that money is not enough to compensate for the burden of the people in the agriculture sector. Although, she swears to take care of them for as long as she remains as Senator.
Another Presidentiable in the Family
Regardless of President Rodrigo Duterte’s remark that if a politician cannot kill, he or she can’t be a president, another presidentiable in the Marcos family emerges. Vice Presidential Protestee, Bongbong Marcos is not in public office right now. But his Senator-sister continues to take care of her people’s livelihood. She is a kind politician. President Duterte also believes that no politician can take up the highest position in the land. However, this is just the President’s opinion.
Reigning through Kindness
The President’s style of leading the country through toughness is his unique style. Nonetheless, reigning through kindness is also a proven technique in the world’s history. The Senator is one example of a politician who can do just that. She can inspire people like her mother, former First Lady, Imelda Marcos and has the brilliance of her father, the late President Ferdinand E. Marcos.
