The people of the Philippines have President Duterte, and we have Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani. Duterte was mayor of the city of Davao prior to becoming a president. While a mayor he gained a reputation of urging the killing of anyone connected with drugs, users as well as sellers. He gained fame for his efforts to wipe out the drug dealers and users. As he put it: “In Davo, I used got do it personally just to show the guys(police officers) that I could do it. I was really seeking a confrontation so I could kill. ”
President Détente believes if a leader kills bad guys it sends a signal to police that if they murder someone, just say it was a “bad guy.” At least 3,000 people have been murdered–not killed–murdered. Fortunately, for we Americans, Donald Trump is a coward. The only thing he can murder is the English language.
