Duterte wants to debate foreign lawyers on drug war: I’ll show the world how stupid you are!
By Prince Golez
President Rodrigo Duterte has taken potshots at foreign lawyers fighting his government’s campaign against illegal drugs.
“Akala nila lahat ng kaso ng drugs, gobyerno na. Tarantado itong human rights, pati na yang mga abogado na walang alam. Maniwala ka karamihan yang mga puti, mga bugok yan. Totoo lang,” said Duterte in a speech delivered in Malacañang Thursday evening.
The President also challenged them to debate him so the world can see how stupid they are.
“I would love to debate with you one day in public, international, and show to the world how stupid you are, forgetting that it is a sacred duty of a President to preserve his country and protect the people. I am a government worker and that is my job,” he added.
Since Duterte took office in 2016, more than 6,000 drug suspects have been killed in his anti-drugs campaign.
