President Rodrigo Duterte asked the LGBTQ community in Japan if they can confirm if Senator Antonio Trillanes is gay.
KAMI learned from the Inquirer that President Duterte also mentioned about him being “gay” in the past. He noted that the LGBTQ members can sense it if someone else is gay or not.
“Ano si Trillanes?" President Duterte asked the audience and they answered, “bakla!”
“Ako, bakla ako noon. Sinong bakla dito? Bakla man ako noon. Mabuhay ang bakla ng Pilipinas,” Duterte said.
“Mabuti na lang pareho kami ni Trillanes pero nagamot ko ang sarili ko noong kami na ni Zimmerman,” he added.
“Nung nakita ko si Mutya sabi ko, ‘Ah, eto na’, naging lalaki ako ulit,” he continued.
The President also shared a story about the time when a person sitting beside him said that Trillanes is gay.
As previously reported by KAMI, President Duterte also questioned the gender of Senator Trillanes. The President also claimed that he was “gay” before and there is nothing that the LGBTQ members should be afraid.
The President is currently in Japan for a four-day work trip. He attended the 25th International Conference on the Future of Asia.
