Is Trillanes preparing to stage another coup with the help of Americans?

Sundalong kanin is at it again. Destabilizing governments that he dislikes.
Trillanes made it a personal quest to bring down Duterte's government after the latter rejected to take him as his running mate as Vice President in the last Presidential elections.

Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano on Thursday assailed former colleague, Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV, for campaigning against the Duterte administration among some US politicians.

For his part, presidential spokesperson Ernesto Abella expressed hopes that Trillanes shared accurate information about the Philippines with Sen. Marco Rubio.

Trillanes has left for the United States and met with Rubio, a Republican senator from Florida who had expressed concern about the drug killings in the Philippines.

Cayetano said Trillanes had also been critical of past presidents when he was a member of Congress, but claimed that he drew the line at toppling the government.

“I worked with Senator Trillanes in the past and you know my respect to the Senate as an institution. All I can say is, although it’s a free world, it doesn’t help the country where there’s misinformation, disinformation, especially false information,” Cayetano told reporters on the sidelines of a forum on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean).

“Even when I was a staunch critic of some presidents, I’ve never gone abroad to ask for help to topple them,” he said.

Trillanes has reportedly been connecting with some of the senators whom Cayetano tried to meet during his recent monthlong stay in Washington DC and New York City.
