[VIDEO]: Compiled in the video are visuals of Duterte and Marcos’ chemistry as they go around doing what politicians normally do with constituents and allies. Although the President reached out to Robredo already, it’s not just the same as it’s Duterte-Marcos complimenting each other’s strengths and weaknesses as a team.
Assassination Threats are Real
News on the president’s assassination threats is not a secret. In fact, media outlets are broadcasting them. The President is also not scared. He’s used to it ever since his Mayor days in Davao.
