“Akala ko ba three to six months lang kaya niya ng tapusin ang drug problem or else magre-resign siya? Tapos ngayon kailangan na mag martial law? Anyare? Nag-supermoon?” Trillanes told reporters through a text message.
One of the campaign promises of President Rodrigo Duterte during the elections was that he would wipe off the drug problem in the country in his first three to six months in the office.
But on Tuesday, he once again talked about martial law as a “contingency” to stop widespread violence.
“I am not a fan of martial law. Abugado ako e. Natakot ‘yung mga tao sa martial law. But if ever, martial law is a contingency to meet widespread violence,” Duterte said.
This is not the first time Duterte talked about martial rule, though. In August, he threatened to declare Martial Law if Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno would meddle with his campaign against drugs.
