Presidential aspirant Ferdinand Marcos Jr. has admitted to giving his running mate, Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte, a hard time in their quest to win the 2022 elections.

Appearing in their first vlog together, Marcos said Duterte has been subjected to a grueling campaign schedule over the past months.

Marcos made the confession in response to a question from a supporter about his and Duterte’s favorite quotes. The presidential daughter answered that it was “no time for rest.”

“Aaminin ko kaya sinasabi ni Inday Sara ‘yan kasi medyo pinahirapan namin siya doon sa schedule namin. Kaya naramdaman niya talaga ‘yung ‘no time for rest,’” Marcos said.

The former senator, meanwhile, said his favorite quote was, “in unity, there is strength.”

Both Marcos and Duterte said they gave serious thought about running together.

“Talagang pinag-isipan namin na siguro pinakamagandang magsanib-puwersa kami ni Inday. Mula nga noong magsama kami, nakita kong tama nga yung aming ginawa,” Marcos said.

Marcos and Duterte are both leading in voter preference surveys for president and vice president, respectively, with four months to go before the 2022 elections.
