President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday (May 23) dares the military to oust him if they want Vice President Leni Robredo to replace him.

The Chief Executive said he would rather step down than seeing soldiers killing each other in a coup d’état.

  "Kahit idoble mo ang sweldo eh. Magpapalakas ako? For what? Takot ako na i-coup d’etat ako ng police pati military? If you want me out, tell me," said Duterte in a speech

"Sabi ko, kung mag-tindig kayo sa Army, Navy, Air Force, pati si Albayalde, if you stand up together now, I am resigning. Huwag na kayong mag-coup d'etat-coup d'etat. Sayangin lang ninyo yung pagod ninyo. Ayaw ninyo ako? Sabihin ninyo bababa ako."

"Kung ayaw ninyo, magbaba ako. Bakit kayo magbarilan? Hindi ako papayag na 'yung PSG magbarilan, kalokohan," he said.

"Ayaw ninyo ako? Okay. Uwi na ako. Sige… 'Yung babae na ang presidente niyo. Kung mahusay siya eh di wala akong ano… Tatakutin ako ng coup d'etat. Ah kalokohan 'yan," he added, referring to Robredo

Earlier, the President also dared the military to go to Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, should they ever lose confidence in his leadership.
