MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. on Friday (Nov 24) admitted he ran out of steam after his trip to the United States (US).

Marcos could not attend the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF) on Thursday (Nov 23) and had reportedly been under the weather.


“I basically just ran out of steam yesterday. I was not able to recover from the trip. I needed rest. I’m fine now. Thank you for your concern,” said Marcos in an ambush interview in Taguig City.


Three days after the President had flown back from the US for the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Summit, he flew to General Santos City, where a magnitude 6.8 earthquake had struck on November 17.

Marcos was set to deliver a speech at the APPF in the evening of the same day. Needing rest, First Lady Liza Marcos attended the event instead.
