MANILA, Philippines — President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. on Tuesday said that he tried not to cause traffic as much as possible when he attended the concert of British rock band Coldplay at the Philippine Arena.

“The other thing I try to avoid is to cause traffic — because when I go [somewhere], it’s embarrassing sometimes… everybody has to stop…  I try as little as possible to cause traffic,” said Marcos in an exclusive interview on “24 Oras” on GMA.


Marcos admitted he would also want to maximize his time.
