Philippines' President Rodrigo Duterte Sang A Love Song To Donald Trump

While in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte sang a love song to U.S. President Donald Trump.

While in the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte sang a love song to U.S. President Donald Trump. Duterte admitted to stabbing someone to death just prior to Trump's arrival in the Philippines. The Duterte regime is behind the killings of thousands under the pretense of his so-called war on drugs.

President Rodrigo Duterte crooned a hit Filipino love song at a dinner in Manila for leaders from across Asia, explaining later that it was “on the orders of Donald Trump”. One of the song’s verses, translated from Filipino, begins: “You are the light in my world, a half of this heart of mine.”

Duterte is a human rights nightmare but Trump is indifferent to his track record.

More than 3,900 Filipinos have been killed in a war on drugs that Duterte declared when he took office last year. His government says the police act in self-defence, but critics say executions are taking place with no accountability...But Trump, who has been criticised at home for neglecting rights issues in dealings abroad, praised Duterte in May for doing an “unbelievable job on the drug problem”.
