After his two terms at the Senate of the Philippines, former opposition Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV will be pursuing a teaching career at the University of the Philippines Diliman and Ateneo de Manila University.

In an exclusive interview with ANC’s “Early Edition”, the former Magdalo revealed his new profession after being a lawmaker.

"It’s a more relaxed life after the Senate and right now I’m preparing for my teacher work this coming semester," he said

Trillanes, one of the most vocal critics of President Rodrigo Duterte also revealed that he will be teaching Public Policy in UP Diliman.

The senator disclosed that he has a master's degree from the National College of Public Administration and Governance.

When asked if he feels more vulnerable to legal actions of the government against him now that he is a private citizen, he said; 

"I never felt not being vulnerable under this admin. Since 2016 when Duterte assumed office I already had I think 10-14 cases. Whether I’m a senator or not it didn’t stop Mr. Duterte from persecuting people like me from the opposition,"

"Duterte is very consistent. He needs to put away any semblance of opposition. That’s the kind of governance he thrives in." Trillanes said
