Senator Antonio Trillanes IV on Monday ​challenged​ President Duterte to make good ​on his ​threat of “destroying” him by exposing his alleged wrongdoings and involvement in various irregularities.

“Sa akin, just try. ‘Todo mo na, itodo mo na. Do your worst kasi hahabulin at hahabulin din kita and I will not destroy you by fabricated information but I will destroy you with the truth,” he said in a press conference.

The truth, Trillanes said, is the matter on Duterte being the one actually keeping numerous secret bank accounts in billions of pesos along with some of his immediate family members.

“Ngayon, ibabalik ko kay Duterte yung hamon. Nagparatang ka sa akin, pumirma ako ng waiver, nagparatang ako sa yo, isang taon mahigit na, iniiba mo yung usapan. Marami kang sinasabi na ‘sige buksan nyo (yung bank accounts ko).’ Hindi pwedeng boka-boka dyan. Kailangan mong pumirma ng waiver. Kung matapang ka, kung hindi ka corrupt, pumirma ka nung waiver kagaya ng ginawa ko ngayon. Pumirma ka, addressed sa AMLC (Anti-Money Laundering Council), addressed sa Ombudsman, kung talagang hindi ka kurakot,” he said.

But Trillanes admitted that no amount of prodding to the President can convince him into signing a waiver, just like what he did on the alleged 12 bank deposits – including supposed offshore accounts.

“So dito tayo magkatapatan. Dito natin mapapakita na itong si Duterte ay napakasinungaling na tao at ginagamit yung kapangyarihan ng gobyerno para manira ng mga miyembro ng opposition,” he said.

“Well nagkakamali ka (Mr. President). This is the biggest blunder na ginawa nito ni (Pres.) Duterte. Dinala mo itong away dito sa territoryo ko eh. Hindi ka pwedeng tumindig sa akin dito. Ngayon inaabangan ko yung waiver mo. Magpakalalaki ka. Hindi ka mapo-proteksyunan nitong baril mo sa tagiliran,” he said.
