Trillanes to give Duterte 6 months if they both win

/ 09:08 PM April 05, 2016

“I will give him a deadline too. I will give him 6 months,” said vice presidential candidate Sen. Antonio “Sonny” Trillanes IV when asked about the possibility of him and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte winning in the May elections.

Trillanes, during the first INQ & A on Facebook, said he would let Duterte, who is running for president, make good on his promise to solve the problem of crime and corruption in the country within the first six months of his term.

“Tatahimik ako ng six months pero after six months talagang maniningil ako,” he told “I will get out of his way.”

Trillanes has in the past said that a Duterte presidency would be a “disaster” for the Philippines.

On Tuesday, he claimed that Duterte, who boasts of managing a crime-free Davao City, was just lying to the public. Trillanes called the tough-talking mayor “deceitful,” especially since he first allegedly lied about wanting to run for president.

The senator pointed out that even Davao had a high crime rate. He said that while Davao City was a beautiful urban area like Cagayan de Oro, crime was still prevalent despite Duterte being in power for decades.

Among the incidents mentioned by Trillanes were the bombings in the Davao International Airport and the Sasa Wharf in 2003.

“Sino ba ang gumawa doon? Hindi nya masasagot yan (Who did that? He can’t even answer),” he said.
