Philippines Not Exactly Having A Summer Of Love
Philippine’s very own Donald Trump and President Rodrigo Duterte has created a new version of the “War on Drugs” that is almost as bad as when America tried it. In an effort to wipe out the drugs trade in his country, President Duterte sanctioned the killing of over 900 suspected drug traffickers. That’s a terrifying number of state-sanctioned killings considering Duterte has only been the President since June. The UN has repeatedly condemned the drive as a violation of human rights, but rather than hearing them out, Duterte gave an “expletive-laden tirade” against the UN where he threatened to leave. It doesn’t look like his War on Drugs will be ending after a jam-packed summer.
