President Rodrigo Duterte and Opposition senator Antonio Trillanes IV have been the big cat and mouse of Philippine politics, always exchanging tirades with one another.

Duterte lashed out anew against Trillanes, calling the senator shameless after reports alleged the latter, and the opposition party was linked with "Bikoy" for a destabilization plot.

He challenged his other critics to come out now if they really want to oust him. 

"Anong makuha ninyo kung patayin ninyo ako? At 'yang mga black propaganda eventually the truth will come out" he said.

He fired mostly at Trillanes, accusing him of owning cars and property listed under the names of different people. 

"Lalabas rin 'yan pero sabi ko wala kang hiya, hindi ka lalaki," he said. 

Trillanes and Magdalo party-list Rep. Gary Alejano earlier denied the claims of Peter Joemel Advincula a.k.a "Bikoy" that members of the opposition had plotted to discredit and oust President Duterte.

Prior to that, the senator is chill to cite Duterte’s previous defamation against him. “This time, si Bikoy naman source mo. Henyo ka talaga, Dutz,” he sarcastically called out.

On the Bikoy case, Trillanes said, "I deny the allegations made by this Bikoy character. This could be another ploy of the administration to harass the opposition. For now, I will be consulting with my lawyers so that we could also file the appropriate charges against him.”

Bikoy surfaced in the limelight, after a video discrediting the president and his family which said both were part of a larger drug syndicate. He turned over himself to the Integral Bar of the Philippines.
