'Maghanap uli kayo ng Marcos' - Duterte

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte is again making reference to his idol the former Ilocano great President Ferdinand Marcos.

"Sa batas na ito, even if you give me 20 years I cannot do it. Maghanap uli kayo ng Marcos. Or someday, somehow, somewhere that fellow will be elected in the generations to come," the President said in a speech.
