According to the politician, he is on a mission to fight corruption. “Officials can not have such cars. Hand it over to scrap metal, make toys out of them, “Duterte said.

The President of the Philippines is known for his scandalous statements. In November 2017, he admitted that, as a teenager, he stabbed a man to death. Similarly, the head of state vowed to kill officials involved in drug trafficking.

On January 22, Duterte ordered the army and police to shoot him if he “ever becomes a dictator” hence illustrating that he doesn’t think he’s being overbearing.
