Senator Antonio Trillanes, known as a political critique of President Rodrigo Duterte , threw a challenge to the President. KAMI learned that the senator dared President Duterte to undergo a drug test once again as reported by ABS-CBN News.
KAMI shares this news to the readers to spread awareness regarding the on-going drug war in the Philippines under the administration of Duterte.
“Duterte is desperately trying to contain the damage of his admission about marijuana use by saying it is just a joke. Too late! Bistado na sya na isa rin pala syang durugista," said Trillanes.
According to Trillanes, if the President really meant it as a joke and that he is clean, he must undergo a drug test.
"Now, if he really wants to clear himself, I am again calling on him to take a drug test," said the senator.
It has been recorded that there were 5,000 killed due to the anti-drug war campaign since 2016.
In a report by GMA News, the Palace responded about the challenge of Trillanes.
“Hindi niya [Duterte] papatulan ‘yun. Nagtataka nga ako ba’t pinapatulan ninyo siya,” said Presidential Spokesperson Salvador Panelo.
As previously reported by KAMI, President Duterte said that he was using marijuana as a tool to keep him awake amid his hectic schedule. The President quickly defended himself and said that he was just kidding.
It has been reported before by KAMI that Trillanes went through a drug test and he then challenged the Presidential family to undergo the test as well for the public to know.
