On Mother’s Day President Marcos thanks Liza for defending family

MANILA, Philippines — As Filipinos celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday, President Marcos expressed his appreciation to his wife, First Lady Liza Marcos for defending her family “at any turn.”

“To this dear lady, who not only fills our home with love but stands ready to defend her family at any turn – happy Mother’s Day!” Marcos said in a post on his social media pages, which was accompanied by a family photo.
