Despite the backlash from social media, Antonio Trillanes IV is proud to be a part of an elite group of world leaders who “survived” the wringer within the BBC present “Hardtalk.”
Trillanes mentioned that BBC’s Hardtalk program, hosted by Stephen Sackur, has been identified for its controversial and difficult model of questioning, which places its friends on the defensive.
Trillanes famous that some of the well-known personalities who confronted Sackur had been Presidents Donald Trump of the US, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela, Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan, Thabo Mbeki of South Africa, and the Dalai Lama.
“In the first place, I won’t even be promoting the interview on my official Facebook page if it didn’t go well,” the previous Navy officer mentioned.
“That is why I advise those who based their opinions on the spliced video being propagated by the Duterte supporters and propagandists, to watch the complete interview so they can judge it for themselves,” Trillanes added.
The senator mentioned that he doesn’t remorse accepting BBC’s “invitation” to seem within the present in contrast to “some people” from Malacanang who apparently turned down an identical request.
“My office has been informed that the Hardtalk program has also been requesting to interview President Duterte, and they have even offered to come to Manila for it, but their requests have been constantly ignored by the Palace. What could be their excuse?” Trillanes mentioned.
