MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Antonio Trillanes has no hurt feelings towards President Rodrigo Duterte — despite the latter’s recent proclamation revoking the amnesty granted to the Senator and ordering his arrest.
The amnesty granted to Trillanes by ex-Presient NoyNoy Aquino was in connection with the Senator’s failed coup attempts in the past.
In a statement posted on his Twitter account, Trillanes hinted that Duterte is nearing sainthood (‘malapit na itong is Duterte’).
This is the first time that Trillanes made a public statement in favor of the President.
If Trillanes’ wish would come true, Duterte’s sainthood could preempt moves to make Cory Aquino the next Filipino saint. That hasn’t gone anywhere far.
