Duterte offers to hold human rights world summit

Duterte Says He Killed Someone At 16, Threatens To Slap UN Official

Duterte was referring to Representatives Randy Hultgren of IL and James McGovern of MA, co-chairmen of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, who had urged US President Donald Trump to "impress upon President Duterte the United States" profound concern over reported extra-judicial killings associated with the Philippine government's "war on drugs'" during their meeting in Manila next week.

In 2015, while he was mayor of Davao City, Mr. Duterte said in an interview with Esquire that he had stabbed someone to death when he was 17 years old.

"How much more", Duterte asked rhetorically of his willingness to kill, "now that I am president?" "The president uses colorful language when (he is with) Pinoys (Filipinos) overseas".

The Philippines president said last month: "You think that we are a bunch of morons here. For these reasons, it is paramount that human rights violations not be the consequences of the Philippines" "war on drugs.' It is the obligation of the United States to advocate for and defend those human rights as set forth in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights", the lawmaker said.

The controversial leader previously made headlines for making inappropriate comments about the brutal rape-death of an Australian missionary in the Philippines and for calling former President Barack Obama "son of a w****". "I'll meet you in the airport".

The two men, both of whom ran a contentious and fiery election campaigns, share a knack for saying most offensive things about women and have a deep hatred for media, have apparently developed a "warm rapport" during their friendly phone calls and exchange of letters, according to the White House.

"I have to say, countering terrorism today is one of our common tasks, objectives and challenges. I take care of my country and I will nurture my country to health".

It was not the first time that Duterte talked about killing a person.

"If you do not like me, I do not like you". "I will tell them, you are too presumptuous".

"You fuck with my countrymen, I won't let you off the hook", he added, mixing English and Tagalog.
