Vice Presidential candidate Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV warned the Filipino public that although foreign investors are wary of Vice President Jejomar Binay winning the presidency, it would be worst for the country if the tough-talking Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte elected as President of the Philippines.
The constant critic of VP Binay, Sen. Trillanes who is considered as one of the closest ally of Malacanang in the Senate, cited the controversial statement of Mayor Duterte that he had engaged in summary executions of suspected criminals.
In an interview with Inquirer, Sen. Trillanes was quoted as saying “I can’t imagine myself saying this, but it’s going to be so much worse,” he said when asked about the prospects of Duterte becoming the country’s chief executive.
The once detained senator who led the failed 2003 Oakwood Mutiny added further that a Duterte presidency would be a “disaster for the country.”
Sen. Trillanes also expressed apprehension that such a practice of Mayor Duterte that already worked positively in Davao city, will definitely not going to work in the national scale instead it would escalate into something worse.
