Aside from the Oakwood mutiny and his arrest, I cannot really remember anything Sen. Trillanes has done in the country. Other writers have referred to him as whiny and dangerous. After his speech in the Senate, Angie Reyes took his life. And the list can go on and on.
But I want to focus in his campaigns. Read below and find for yourself which is true or not.
