President Rodrigo Duterte assured media that his offers of food and coffee do not come with strings attached

Duterte said that even his former girlfriend, PTV-4 reporter Rocky Ignacio, would attest to his sincere desire to feed reporters during press cons without asking for anything in return.

Duterte made the remarks during a press conference way past midnight Tuesday in Malacanang when he urged reporters to drink coffee to keep them awake.

“Huwag kayong mahiya. Wala akong hingiin sa inyo. Kaya ayaw ko kayong kausapin nga eh para wala akong hingiin. And you know, nandiyan, buhay pa man kayo, you covered me, you covered my presidency. Never asked anything,” said Duterte.

“Ikaw Rocky, tagal ka na… Tagal na… Nagka-syota na lang tayo. Noon. Wala akong hiningi na… “Write a favorable article for me,” he said. Duterte said all he asked from reporters were to report his statements and policies truthfully and fairly.

“You can publish anything as long as it is — huwag mo nang i-twist. Publish mo. You show it to the public, I would not mind. I guarantee you. I will even protect you. I am asking only for truth and fairness. That is all. Kape muna tayo. ‘Pag hindi, magsama loob ko sa inyo,” said Duterte.

Duterte joked that reporters have nothing to fret about because the coffee he was offering came from the taxes they paid.

“Hoy, loko-loko. Inyong pera ‘yan, hindi ‘yan akin. Bili ng gobyerno ‘yan. Ako pa magpabili ng kape ninyo? Maswerte kayo. Tara, kape tayo doon. Pera niyo ‘yan. Buang,” said Duterte.
