Trump To Saddle Up With Yet Another Authoritarian Leader

April 30, 2017

After making odd comments about the tough time the twenty-something leader in North Korea had in taking control of his country, President Trump now makes a play to another authoritarian leader.

The New York Times reports.

President Trump “invited the president of the Philippines, Rodrigo Duterte, to the White House, embracing an authoritarian leader who is accused of ordering extrajudicial killings of drug suspects and who crudely disparaged Mr. Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama.”

“Mr. Duterte’s war on drugs has resulted in the deaths of several thousand people suspected of using or selling narcotics, as well as others who may have had no involvement with drugs. Human rights groups and many Western governments have condemned Mr. Duterte for the bloody campaign.”
