Paolo Duterte running for House seat to get back at Trillanes- Pres. Duterte
Presidential son and former Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte is running for Congress in the 2019 midterm elections to get back at Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, his father President Rodrigo Duterte said on Friday
“I think he’s running for congressman kasi napahiya… hiniya ni Trillanes. He was summoned to Congress,” Duterte said in his speech before the Filipino community in Papua New Guinea.
“Gaganti talaga ‘yan. He will be running for congressman, tabla sila dyan,” he added.
Paolo recently filed his certificate of candidacy for Davao City 1st District representative.
He surrendered December a year ago, refering to his fizzled marriage with his first spouse and his supposed inclusion in the 6.4-billion worth of shabu from China through the Bureau of Customs.
Amid a Senate request on the supposed P6.4-billion shabu shipment in May 2017, Trillanes, one of the organization’s fiercest pundits, blamed Paolo for contribution in the illicit medication exchange.
In a similar discourse, Duterte additionally ripped into Trillanes’ gathering, the Magdalo Party, which organized two uprisings against previous President Gloria Arroyo.
