Trillanes agrees with Duterte on taking care of military, AFP modernization


Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said, during his recent interview with GMA’s The Mangahas Interviews, that he agrees with how President Rodrigo Duterte is taking care of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP).

The former senator said they agree on how President Duterte provides morale and welfare benefits to the members of AFP.

“At pati ‘yung modernization program na itinulak noong Aquino administration ay pinagpatuloy niya. Sa ganoong paraan nag-aagree tayo doon,” Trillanes added.


However, Trillanes has expressed disagreement with how President Duterte is managing the West Philippine Sea dispute.

“Until lately, pinagbawalan ni Duterte na magconduct ng EEZ patrols ang Philippine Navy at Air Force. Maliwanag po ‘yan at sinabi nila ‘yan publicly. So parang sinuko nila ‘yung territory na ‘yan sa China,” he said.
