Trillanes on Duterte's promises: 'Crime, corruption at illegal drugs at lalong lumala'

On Tuesday, Senator Antonio Trillanes hits President Rodrigo Duterte and said not only did he fail to fulfill his promises to solve crime and eradicate corruption and illegal drugs in six months, but the problems even worsened.

"Klaruhin ko lang, ang mga pangunahing pangako nya na lulutasin nya ang crime, corruption at illegal drugs in 3 to 6 months, ay lalong lumala," Trillanes said.

"Nagkalat na ang mga killers ngayon sa lansangan. Pinakawalan nya rin ang lahat ng mga kaalyado nyang mandarambong. Sa iligal na droga naman, ni hindi nya mahanap o hindi hinahanap ang mga nasa likod ng 6.4 bn at 11bn peso shabu shipments," the senator said in a article of GMA News.



The Senator also slams Duterte who said he was not able to fulfill his promise to solve the traffic problem in the country because he was not given emergency powers by Congress.

"Papano sya bibigyan ng emergency powers, eh nung tinanong kung ano ba plano nila, wala silang maipakita. Gusto lang nya macorner ulit ng Davao group ang mga infra projects with the emergency powers," he said.

On Saturday, Duterte said he had delivered most of his promises, but addressing the appalling traffic situation along EDSA was not one of them.

"Wala akong pangako na hindi ko natupad except yang [traffic sa] EDSA. Nangako ako ng free tuition nandyan na ang batas, nangako ako ng free universal healthcare, pirmado ko na ang batas," Duterte said in a speech in BiƱan City, Laguna.

"Ano pa naman ang gusto? 'Yung Pantawid, sabi ko itutuloy ko. Saan kukunin? Nandiyan sa Train (law) lahat 'yan," he added.

He then blamed Congress, which had not granted him the emergency powers needed to solve the major traffic problems.

"Sabi ko I have to have the authority, kagaya ‘yung binigay kay (former President) Cory (Aquino) 'nung sa --- Ramos, ‘yung electricity. So they were given extraordinary powers...Ako naman sabi ko, hindi ko sinabing walang bidding. I said I would need money to repair or rehabilitate or do away with the present situation," he said.

"So nung narinig ko sa --- sa Congress. Hindi sila. 'Ah hindi pwede ‘to baka, you know, ang graft and corruption papasok dito.'..." he added.

"Kaya ang EDSA hanggang ngayon, ‘yan, wala akong magawa. Pero never did I ask money na sabihin na walang bidding-bidding," he said.
