Former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Wednesday clapped back at President Rodrigo Duterte after receiving fresh tirades against him, telling the Chief Executive to relax and focus on the government’s effort for coronavirus vaccination program.

“Kitang kita ang takot sa mga pananalita ni Duterte,” Trillanes said in a statement Wednesday which he also posted on Twitter.

“Relax lang sya. Tutukan lang nya ang vaccine rollout. Next year pa naman namin sya ipapakulong,” Trillanes added.

During his conference in Surigao del Sur, Duterte warned voters over possible comeback of Trillanes in Philippine politics.

He was apparently responding to calls for Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to run as president on 2022 national elections.

“Inday Sara is not running. I have really really put my foot down. Naaawa ako sa anak ko. Ang pulitika dito sa Pili — kababuyan. Lalo na si Trillanes pati ‘yong anak kong 16 years old ginawa pa ‘tong drug lord,” Duterte said.

“Be careful of Trillanes. Be careful of Trillanes. Magbantay kayo. They will sell — he will sell you to the devil pag ‘yan ang nakaupo, patay,”  Duterte added.
