“I greet all the mothers belatedly, though, happy mother's day!” he said.
“I remember my mother, Soledad. She was a good mother, look naging Presidente pa ako. She must be smiling or she must be in a state of wonderment at the face of my father. Ano ang nagawa natin sa gag*ng ito?" He added.
In a live video on Facebook, the President also sympathized with mothers who lost their children fighting COVID-19.
“You have our kind thoughts and prayers,” the President said.
