Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, September 9) — President Rodrigo Duterte on Saturday slammed Sen. Antonio Trillanes over his allegations of corruption against the presidential family, threatening to expose the senator's bank deposits.

"I'm coming up with Trillanes' bank deposits all over. Ngayon, nakuha ko na, akala kasi niya hindi ko rin kaya eh (I've already got it, he thought I couldn't do it)," Duterte said at the closing ceremony of the 26th Mindanao Business Conference in Cagayan de Oro City.

The President also revealed Trillanes has joint accounts in different countries.

"I am giving you, in a few days, the number of deposits that he has with his Chinese joint accounts. It's all over. Hong Kong, Australia, America," Duterte said.

Duterte also reiterated his commitment to stop corruption, maintaining  he will resign if he is presented proof that he or his family are involved in corrupt activities.

However, Trillanes fired back at the President, denying the allegations and challenging him to reveal the details of his supposed accounts.

"Hindi totoo yan. Fake news yan. Sinungaling yan si Duterte. Hinahamon ko siya na ilabas niya yung detalye at agaran ako pipirma ng waiver para malaman ang katotohanan," Trillanes told CNN Philippines in a text message.

[Translation: That's not true. That's fake news. Duterte is lying. I'm challening him to reveal the details and I will immediately sign the waiver so the truth would be exposed.]

During the campaign period, Trillanes said Duterte had funneled billions of pesos into his different accounts in several banks.
