Trillanes calls Duterte a communist
If he thinks and talks like a communist, then he must be a communist.
This was how Senator Antonio Trillanes IV reacted on Friday to President Rodrigo Duterte’s announcement that the Philippines would cut its ties with the United States.
“If he thinks like a communist, talks like a communist, frees the communists, and appoints the communists, then he MUST be a communist,” Trillanes said in a statement.
Asked whether he was referring to Duterte and if he was saying that the President is a communist, Trillanes answered in the affirmative.
Duterte announced he was “separating” from the US in an economic forum in Beijing on Thursday.
“Your honors, in this venue, I announce my separation from the United States…both in military and economic also,” the President said. CDG/rga
