“Pinag-uusapan ito. For those who are not happy with how things are going, they choose, at least, not to be the apologist of the President. I appreciate that. Maaaring they are just giving him time to correct himself,” Trillanes said.
In a press conference, senator asked if how many senators were unhappy with president,”Marami-rami din. More than 10.”
According to Trillanes, he also criticized some of his colleagues who are turning out to be “apologists” for President Duterte.
“Naiintindihan ko pa kung quiet ka lang at tinatantsa mo 'yung sitwasyon. Maiintindihan ko ‘yun. Pero to be an apologist, ibang level 'yun,” he said.
“It’s either sumisipsip ka or natatakot ka mafile-an ng kaso or worse, you actually believe na tama 'yan,” he reffering the alleged EJKs and Duterte war against illegal drugs in the country.
“Bakit ba kayo tumakbo, para maging tuta ng isang administrasyon? Or para sabihin 'yung tama, itulak ‘yung tama?” trillanes said.
He also said that President Duterte is behind the extrajudicial killings and asked him what his proof.
“Kung hindi siya ang nasa likod nito, bakit hindi niya mapigil? At instead, in-e-encourage pa niya 'yung killings,” he said.
