Rodrigo Duterte, the man who will be the 16th President of the Philippines in June, is very controversial, and known for his strict guidelines against crime. Duterte is in favor of vigilante justice and death squads. In other words, in his reign, people have two choices – stop committing crimes, or die. This man will literally put the courts out of business.
Is Rodrigo Duterte the Donald Trump of the Philippines?
Not exactly. Rodrigo Duterte is a combination of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders. He has the rhetoric of Donald Trump, but when it comes down to policy, Duterte is more like Bernie Sanders.
It’s difficult to say that Rodrigo Duterte is worse then Trump. He speaks like Trump, but in a much calmer way. This probably makes him more dangerous.
