Duterte tells son Paolo: Magbarilan kayo ni Trillanes sa Kongreso!

President Rodrigo Duterte said his son, resigned Davao City mayor Paolo Duterte and Senator Antonio Trillanes IV can kill each other once they meet in Congress.
Duterte made the statement on Friday in his speech at a gathering with the Filipino community in Papua New Guinea, a day ahead of the 26th Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation Economic Leaders’ Meeting.
“This time, I think he is running for Congressman kasi napahiya kasi. Hiniya ni Trillanes eh. He was summoned to Congress. Ganon si Trillanes,” the chief executive said, referring to the Senate investigation into drug smuggling.
“He will be running for Congressman, tabla sila diyan. Sabi ko kung magkaaway man kayo ni Trillanes, pagdating niyo sa Congress mag barilan kayo. Kung mamatay ka, ililibing kita, pero that’s how it is,” he added.
In 2017, the younger Duterte resigned from his post after being dragged into the smuggling of P6.4 billion worth of shabu from China through the Bureau of Customs and his word war with daughter Isabelle.
