"Ang plano ko is mag-resign na lang siguro ako," Duterte said.
"'Yung mga yellow diyan, nagde-demonstrate kayo diyan. You want me out kasi you cannot accept defeat," he added.
During the event happened at the People Power Monument on November 30 against the burial of former Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani, Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Mar Roxas and other personalities joined the rally.
But Duterte cleared the Left, which has also organized rallies against the burial, of wanting him to step down.
"Pero iyong masabi ang Left, they will never even allow me to step down, two steps to the ground. Iyang mga komunista at iyong mga NPA [New People's Army], puro Duterte iyan," he said.
He said that rallies led by the yellow are politically motivated.
"Ito, pulitika ito eh. They wanted me out. Siyempre iyong Vice President... Eh 'di kayo. You've had your chance," he said.
Duterte’s ally, House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, claimed that Robredo could be the one plotting to oust the president.
