President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday said he will push through with his visit to Marawi, and in case he dies, then the country will have a "gentle president."

"But I’m going there. The advice was to postpone, but I said no, and if possible, let’s take the same route. Maybe we can have a little gunfight here, gunfight there, exercise, baka. Kung di ako lulusot, that’s why we have Vice President Leni Robredo. You can have a gentle president also in exchange for the discourteous mouth,” Duterte said, referring to the ambush of his 50-member advance party in Marawi, Lanao del Sur.

Seven members of the Presidential Security Group and three soldiers were wounded in the incident.
