“The millennials have moved on, and I think people at my age should also move on as well,” Marcos said.

As the country commemorates the Ninoy Aquino day on Tuesday, Marcos said that their family feud was an old issue that shouldn't be brought up during the death anniversary of former senator Benigno Aquino Jr.


Marcos said the issues thrown at her family have become less important and that it is better now for Filipinos to move on and unite for the good of the country.

“I’m not an apologist to my dad, and I think his work and his project will have to speak for themselves,” she said of the accomplishments of her father.

“The conflict between the Marcoses and Aquinos happened a long time ago. We don’t need to keep hating people for a very long time. It’s not our way. We just need to go forward,” Marcos said.
