Duterte took the chance to slam Trillanes and the 2 media entities which reported on his declare, The Philippine Daily Inquirer and ABS-CBN, when he spoke earlier than businessmen on the 10th itemizing anniversary of Phoenix Petroleum Philippines on the Philippine Stock Exchange Plaza in Makati Tuesday (July 11).
“That’s why, for the first time nakita ninyo, ako lang ‘yung pulitikong nagmura sa… P******i** ko pati ‘yung mga obispo. Pati ako lang… Ako lang ang pulitikong nagmura diyan sa Inquirer na ‘yan. Diyan sa ABS na ‘yan… P****i**** ‘yan, mga mukhang pera. L**** kayo. Totoo naman,” he stated.
Duterte stated Inquirer and ABS-CBN believed the “garbage” peddled by Trillanes.
“Naniniwala sila kay Trillanes, isa pang hopeless. P211 million. Sabi ko, ‘Hindi totoo ‘yan.’ Nung nag-Presidente ako, sabi ko, ‘Sige, ako na ang Presidente ngayon. Kalkalin niyo ang buong Pilipinas, bangko, ‘pag may nakita kayo maski kalahati, I will step down as President,’” he recalled.
During the marketing campaign season, Trillanes claimed 17 of Duterte’s financial institution accounts in three banks had transactions amounting to P2.four billion.
The former Davao City mayor solely had a web price of P21.9 million in 2014, earlier than he joined the presidential race.

“Ako na ang Presidente, ako na ang nag-utos sa inyo. ‘Sige, maghanap kayo diyan.’ Kaya ako kaya kong magbastos ng tao kasi wala kang masilip sa akin,” he stated.
