Antonio Trillanes is a former Senator of the Republic of the Philippines. He continues to be one of the staunchest critics of President Rodrigo Duterte and his allies. He is also known for his involvement in the Oakwood mutiny of 2003 and the Manila Peninsula siege in 2007 in protest against the Arroyo administration. Trillanes and his men were charged in a general court-martial. He was detained for nearly seven and a half years.
Earlier, he and Robin Padilla slammed each other’s views regarding the government’s response against the novel coronavirus disease pandemic. Trillanes first mentioned Robin on Twitter for the actor’s statement about Filipinos complaining amid the health crisis. Robin later on penned a lengthy Instagram post defending himself and the Duterte administration.
He also talked about the franchise of ABS-CBN and the national election in 2022. The ex-lawmaker believes that the media giant will be back on air when the opposition wins a few years from now.
