Palace disputes Trillanes’ claim of having military’s support: Wala ka namang ginawa!
By Prince Golez
Malacanang on Friday laughed off remarks of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV that active members of the Armed Forces have expressed their support for him.
“Siguro po, guni-guni niya iyan, good luck po, dahil siya naman napakatagal na niyang naging senador, wala naman siyang nagawa para sa mga kasundaluhan natin,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque Jr. said.
Unlike Trillanes, Roque said that President Rodrigo Duterte has increased base pay of military and uniformed personnel during his two years in office.
Duterte, together with the former Kabayan party-list representative and other Cabinet officials, is currently in Jordan for a three-day official trip. He is expected to fly back to the Philippines after his meeting with the Filipino community scheduled at 7 p.m. today.
“Si Presidente, dalawang taon pa lang nakaupo bilang Presidente, nadoble na niya ang suweldo n gating mga kasundaluhan. So, good luck Senator Trillanes, believe in your myth, pero kami po sandali pa lang ang ginugol ni Presidente panahon sa paglilingkod, ang unang nakinabang po, ang ating kasundaluhan,” Roque said.
