President Rodrigo Duterte would rather die than be a burden to his children.
In a speech during Senator-elect Bong Go’s thanksgiving party in Davao City Thursday (May 23), Duterte said God should kill him when he no longer has money.
“Gusto ko pag-retire ko, ‘pag naubos na ‘yung pera ko puro sa medisina, sa ospital, then God should kill me. I should die because I do not… wala ka nang pambili kaya ganoon,” he said.
Duterte said that while he has money, it is “not enough.” He estimates his net worth to be around P28 million.
“Meron kami pero not enough to squander, pa-abroad abroad, ganoon. Mahirap ‘yan, kasi I would not want to be a burden sa aking mga anak,” he said.
Duterte’s Statement of Assets, Liabilities and Net Worth for 2017 showed his net worth at P28.54 million.
