Trillanes warns Duterte: Shoot me and it will be your end
Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is not backing down from President Duterte’s threat that somebody might shoot him for being arrogant.
“Go ahead, Mr. Duterte, order somebody to shoot me and, I assure you, it would lead to your end,” Trillanes said in a Facebook post.
Trillanes said only Duterte would want him dead since he was taking a stand against his abuses. He said he fights the “crooked, the corrupt, the oppressors and abusers of power like Duterte” but never bullied the helpless and innocent.
“Now, as to his threat that somebody would shoot me someday, only Duterte would want me dead because it irks him that somebody dared to stand toe to toe with him. My standing up to him makes him look weak and powerless, which is contrary to his objective of making the whole Filipino society afraid of him,” he said.
