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. "I was 16. Just because we looked at each other". "How much more now that I am president". "The president uses colorful language when (he is with) Pinoys (Filipinos) overseas".
"Jail? I was in and out of jail as a teenager", Duterte said.
"I want to pass on words of thanks from the Philippine people for the timely aid that Russian Federation provided by giving us trucks and weapons", Duterte said on November 10 as the two met on the sidelines of the APEC summit in Danang, Vietnam.
Philippines media reported they had contacted the president's spokesman to confirm whether his comments were intended as a joke.More news: Oneplus 5T live images and complete specs leak online ahead of launch
On the UN's special rapporteur on extrajudicial killings, Ms Agnes Callamard, who has been a frequent critic of the drug war, Mr Duterte said: "This rapporteur, I will slap her in front of you. Why?" "Never mind about the human rights advocates". Just to show to the guys that if I can do it why can't you.
Putin said that "weapons are important" but Duterte's "readiness.to fight the threat of terrorism" is even more significant. "I take care of my country and I will nurture my country to health".
American lawmakers, concerned with Duterte's human rights record and rising killings, have blocked the sale of more than 20,000 assault rifles from the United States to the Philippines. "I will tell them, you are too presumptuous".
"You f*** with my countrymen, I will not let you go", he added.
