“These things are out of my hands, desisyon ng taongbayan kung hanggang saan na lang yong kanilang pasensya (It is up to the countrymen to decide on when their patience would run out),” he told reporters.

He claims that he has received messages from supporters not only locally but even those who are living outside the country.

“Our countrymen have been expressing, not only [from] here, but also overseas and they are all concerned with what is happening in our country,” he said.

Trillanes also raised the issue against Duterte  the bloody war on drugs, corruption in government and the rice crisis and the so called bad effects of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN).

The senator even bragged about the ‘very significant’ number of the Armed Forces of the Philippines personnel are like him, are only waiting for the masses to speak up against the government.

“Hinihintay ang mga kababayan natin. ‘Pag punong-puno na yong mga kababayan natin at nagsalita na sila, we will never know. Hindi naman automatic yon na ganoon ang mangyayari, but history will tell us ganoon ang nangyari. It’s palpable, you can feel it when the time is right,” he said, referring to previous people power movements.

The senator clarifies that they would not resort to extra constitutional measures despite their non-agreement with the President’s orders.

“They want to be professional and they want to remain professional,” he said.
