President Rodrigo Duterte on Friday explained his strong leadership style to young students, mostly preschoolers in the southern city of Davao.
In a televised speech at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Center for Brighter Beginnings, Inc. at the Davao Convention and Trade Center aired on RTVM, a state-run television station, Duterte told the children, they see him angry on television because he does not like the bad people in this world.
"I want the world to be only for those who are good," he said. Citing the good guy versus the bad guy story.
The President added he wants the bad guys gone so that there will be nobody who will cause them trouble.
"Others say I’m a bad boy because I hurt bad people and sometimes they say I send them to heaven to go ahead of us," Duterte continued.
In the same speech, Duterte expressed vindication of his administration's relentless anti-drug crackdown saying he previously warned about the gravity of the drug problem but got criticized by then United States President Barrack Obama.
Duterte's remarks comes on the heels of the declaration of US President Donald Trump that the opioid crisis is a national health emergency in America.
Opioids, primarily prescription painkillers, heroin and fentanyl, are fueling drug overdoses in the US.
"Trump has declared a national emergency because of drugs. I told them so. I told Obama wanted to investigate me, I told them ‘one day to your sorrow.’ Look at them now. They just declared," he said.
Duterte also lectured on the different chemicals showing his audience data called precursors and chemicals frequently used in the illicit manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances from the International Narcotic Control Board.
Meanwhile, he criticized again the human rights groups who are critical of his anti-drug campaign and the extrajudicial killings.
"They say ‘the number of those killed is 10,000.’ What the hell? For me you should increase it, make it 50,000,” he said.
“I’m just saying that if you create a problem for us, I will take you out. "I don’t care what the son of a b*tch human rights will say."
Duterte had repeatedly slammed Obama over attempting to lecture the Philippine government in its war on drugs. He had also admitted using fentanyl patches to treat back pain.Last Mod: 28 Ekim 2017, 10:34
