MANILA, Philippines — Designated press secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles on Thursday brushed off the revival of her previous social media posts against Imelda Marcos, mother of President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr. who she would soon serve as member of his Cabinet.

During a briefing with the media, the lawyer and vlogger was asked about her old tweets that sought the arrest and detention of the Marcos matriarch which has been going around social media anew following the announcement of her appointment.


“Aren’t people entitled to change their minds?  I think we are ‘di ba,” Angeles responded.


“I think that evolution is a natural thing, even among our consciousness,” she added.

Angeles said she has talked about her change of mind in her vlog.

“Actually we’ve talked about it, as you know I am a vlogger, and we have talked about it extensively on the vlog, as you know we have conducted several lives about it, and I’ve told my story about how and when I changed my mind about it,” she explained.

“So that’s it, that’s pretty much it, I’m sure you can see them,” she further said.

In February 2013, Angeles tweeted about attainment of true justice “when we see at least Imelda Marcos in jail.”

At that time, the late Benigno S. Aquino III – son of democracy icons former senator Ninoy Aquino and former president Corazon Aquino – was still president of the Philippines and holding the seat of power in Malacañang.


Ninoy Aquino was a chief political rival of Marcos Jr.’s father, the late dictator Ferdinand Sr. in the 1970s through late 1980s, especially after the declaration of martial law in the country.

In December 2018, Imelda Marcos was found guilty of seven counts of graft by the Sandiganbayan. She is released on bail while an appeal is pending before the Supreme Court.
