Mayor Sara Duterte warns Trillanes: "Leave me alone"

On Tuesday, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV claimed that President Rodrigo Roa Duterte's last resort to hold on to power is to push presidential daughter and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio to run for president in 2022.

According to Trillanes, a staunch critic of the current administration, if President Duterte's other options for perpetuating power — declaring nationwide martial law or a revolutionary government and Charter change — fall through, the president's recourse would be to push his daughter to attempt to replace him.

"'Pag di natuloy 'yan, wala na siyang magagawa [kundi] option C niya ay itutulak niya si Sara Duterte bilang pangulo sa 2022, pero ang unang hakbang niyan ay itulak siya para senador sa 2019," Trillanes stated.

Following the claims of the senator, Inday Sara Duterte-Carpio answered back to Trillanes, warning the senator to leave her in peace in Davao City or else Trillanes and his "friends" will spend more than a billion in the 2022 Presidential elections just to make the Davao City Mayor insignificant.

"LEAVE ME ALONE, Senator Trillanes. The last time a person irked me, I made sure to make it difficult for him to bring me down and Speaker Boy Nograles lost that election and was a billion pesos poorer," stated the Davao City Mayor on her Facebook post, Wednesday morning.

She added, "Like Speaker Alvarez, my advice to you is not to think of me, speak of my name, not even a whisper of Inday Sara from your ugly lips. Leave me in peace in Davao City or else you and your friends will spend more than a billion in the 2022 Presidential elections just to make me insignificant. Let me repeat, do not bother me and my slot will be available for a yellow Senator for the 2019 elections.

"President Duterte imagines you will be shot, on the other hand, I will make sure you are alive and in pain. I have been described as heartless by my mother, please do not anger me so that you may remain relevant for the future generation. And you should listen to my mother," the Davao City Mayor post ended.
