The new president of the Philippines, one Rodrigo Duterte is combination of Rudy Giuliani, Don Rumsfeld and Donald Trump all rolled into one. He is bombastic, he wants to kill people, and he has absolutely no respect for law and order even while boasting that he is restoring law and order. Since he assumed the presidency, over 1,900 people have been killed. About 700 were killed by actions of the police or soldiers, but the other 1200 have been murdered by vigilante mobs.
But, the president is just warming up. “Double your effort, triple your effort. We will not stop until the last drug lord, the last financier”has been put to death. Can’t you just hear President Donald Trump uttering these words? One person decides who is right or who is wrong, and one person is prosecutor, judge, jury,and the judge imposing a sentence. Welcome to Trump America!
