Senator Pacquiao then told President Duterte that he was neither a “liar” nor “corrupt”.
“Mawalang galang po mahal na Pangulo, ngunit hindi ako sinungaling. May mga naging pagkakamali ako sa buhay na aking itinuwid at itinama nguni’t dalawang bagay ang kaya kong panghawakan. Hindi ako tiwali at hindi ako sinungaling,” Senator Pacquiao said.
Moreover, Senator Pacquiao said that it was said that he and President Duterte had been arguing over corruption when it was a problem should they could work on together.
