WATCH: President Duterte confirms he received a Mercedez Benz

President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed he received a luxury car Mercedez Benz as a gift but it is not declared in his Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net-worth (SALN) during a press conference, March 14.


According to Duterte the car is not included in his SALN because it is not registered under his name.

When a reporter asked where did it come from, the President answered "Girlfriend ko, may mayaman akong girlfriend noon. Di ko pwedeng i-declare sa SALN yun kase hindi naman na rehistro sa akin."

Duterte added he wanted to return the car but the giver refused and let the car be parked inside the Presidential Residence Compound.

"Sina uli ko kaya lang ayaw tanggapin alangan naman iwanannkobsa Marcelino, baka sabihin niyang tinaggap ko, eh di sabi ko, jan na lang," he continued.

The president has a plan to sell the luxury car and use the money to help the less fortunate or he could just give it to the needy.

President Duterte he likes it more to ride in his pick up than to ride in luxury cars.
