President Rodrigo Duterte today made a response to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV’s challenge to open his bank accounts to prove that the senator’s allegation is not true. Trillanes says Duterte’s has over PhP2 billion in bank transactions.
“If Trillanes can prove his allegation that I have amassed P2 billion illegally or if that bank account under my name has a total deposit at one time or even just half a billion, I will resign as President immediately,” said President Duterte who is in Davao City. The President made the statement through video released Thursday night.
“I would advise Trillanes to go to court and file the proper case against me and advise him further to stop opening his mouth when he has nothing to say,” President Duterte said.
President Duterte also said Senator Trillanes is a last term senator and has no more political career after his term ends in 2019.
“I am reiterating my challenge to President Duterte to release the transaction history of his bank accounts and if my allegations were proven wrong, I would immediately resign as Senator,” Senator Trillanes said.
