Special Assistant to President Christopher “Bong” Go during an interview with reporters on Saturday, indirectly responded to the dare of Senator Antonio Trillanes IV who challenged him to sign bank waiver.
It seems that Go was annoyed because Senator Trillanes terms in the one-on-one challenged that he offered to the opposition politician.
Go rejected Trillanes’ challenge for him to sign a bank waiver, instead, he asked the opposition Senator if he wants a ballpen-stabbing fight.
He said that instead of speaking in public against the government, Trillanes should accept his man-to-man challenge.
“Ball pen lang pala ang gusto mo. Waiver na naman? O saksakan ng ballpen ang gusto mo? Gusto mo saksakan? Kahit saang kampo, puntahan kita,” Go said of Trillanes’ dare in an interview with reporters.
“Tanggapin muna ni Trillanes ang hamon ko sa kanya, kaysa dada siya nang dada. Ang hamon ko sa iyo, one-on-one, sa Tagalog, ‘mano-mano.’ Walang kasamang amo, at baka lalo ka lang maduwag,” he added.
The Special Assistant of President Duterte said that he would only sign a bank waiver if Trillanes would defeat him in his challenge first.
“‘Pag natalo mo ako, pwede ka ng maghamon at kung meron kang makitang billion sa akin, sa ‘yo na,” Go said.
Last week, the word war between Bong Go and Senator Trillanes became intense after the latter claimed that the assistant of the President is lying to the people that he doesn’t want to run for senator while his supporters are putting alleged campaign materials around the country.
In response, Go challenged Trillanes into a one-on-one and mocked the Senator who’s a former Navy Officer for his two failed coup’ attempt.
Kung gusto mo one-on-one na lang tayo. Basta one-on-one na lang tayo. Bahala na kahit anong one-on-one. Kahit saan, bahala ka na kung saan,” he said.
