"The Philippines was found by Magellan utilizing the cash of King Philip… Okay na iyan. Balang araw palitan natin. As a matter of fact tama si Marcos… energy niyang palitan - Maharlika," Duterte said in a discourse amid the appropriation of declarations of land possession grant in Maguindanao. 

The Philippines was named after Spain's King Philip II in the sixteenth century, when the nation was as yet a Spanish state. Spanish voyager Ruy Lopez de Villalobos was the person who brought forth the name "Las Islas Filipinas" for the archipelago.
