Antonio Trillanes Wants Presidential Aspirant Bongbong Marcos Be Defeated in 2022 Poll
Former Senator Antonio Trillanes wants presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. to be defeated in the 2022 elections.
The senatorial candidate told the Inquirer that he wants to show the world that the people rejected Marcos’ name in 1986 and will reject it again in 2022. This was his response to Marcos Jr.’s disqualification petition filed with the Commission on Elections (Comelec).
He is “ambivalent” about the disqualification complaint filed against the presidential candidate, according to him. He said that allowing the people to decide is how democracy should work.
“I’m ambivalent about it, to be honest. Because personally, I want people like Bongbong Marcos to be defeated in the elections because we want to show the world that we have already rejected the Marcos name back in 1986 and we would reject it again in 2022,” Trillanes said.
“So that’s how democracy should work. We should let the people decide,” he added.
Trillanes recently stated on Twitter that the Marcoses’ robbery during the late president’s reign had been officially recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records. He believes Marcos is the “Greatest Government Robbery” in the Guinness Book of World Records.
According to Marcos’ tweet, he reportedly misappropriated $5-10 billion from federal funds. Others were advised to look it up on Google to verify whether he was telling the truth.
In 2022, the former rebel soldier-turned-senator will run for Senate again, this time as part of Vice President Leni Robredo’s senatorial slate. He will run for Senator on Robredo’s Senate ticket as a member of the Liberal Party.
