Trillanes to Duterte: ilabas mo ang tapang mo dito. Alang-alang sa mga die-hard supporters mo
President Rodrigo Duterte was once again challenged by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on February 16, 2017 (Thursday) to disprove that the former has more than Php 2 billion in his bank accounts, an accusation Trillanes made months ago during the presidential campaign.

Trillanes has been a staunch critic of President Duterte and has insisted that the President, despite his major reforms and policies for the betterment of the country, has accumulated his own ill-gotten wealth.
“Ako ay naghamon noon na i-prove niya na ako ay mali...It’s been nine months since, wala pa rin. Inuulit ko ang aking hamon na patunayan niya na mali ako, na meron siyang higit na P2 bilyon sa kanyang bank accounts,” Trillanes said.
The senator presented a matrix of supposed bank transactions of President Duterte which had alleged accounts named under Duterte; Duterte’s children Paolo (P104 million), Sara (P121 million), and Sebastian (P143 milllion); Duterte’s common-law wife Cielito “Honeylet” Salvador Avanceña (P188 million); and Samuel Cang Uy (P118 million), one of Duterte’s campaign donors.
According to Trillanes, the amount of P2 billion were accumulated from 2006 to 2015, when Duterte was still mayor of Davao City.
These bank records has made Trillanes launch comments against the President saying that, “walang ginawa sa corruption at worse pinakawalan pa 'yung simbolo ng corruption, si President Arroyo. Tapos ngayon si Napoles gusto pa pakawalan.”
“Pagka nailabas 'yung transaction history niya at ako ay mali, ako ay magre-resign sa Senado,” the senator added.
Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella scoffed as Trillanes’ remarks saying to, “let him [Trillanes] prove that... The burden of proof goes back to him.”
Furthermore, Senator Alan Peter Cayetano commented that, “this is another desperate attempt of Trillanes to stop the reforms that are happening now because marami siguro sa padrino niya or nasa likod niya ay tinatamaan sa reforms.”
