Duterte 'happy to slaughter' drug suspects; mentions Hitler

Duterte said in his speech in Davao City that the critics have portrayed him "to be some cousin of Hitler".

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte compared his anti-drugs campaign to Hitler's persecution of Jews during WWI, saying, "Hitler massacred three million Jews".

"You know my victims", Duterte said Friday.

He said he would like to "finish the problem of [his] country and save the next generation".

Duterte was elected in a May vote on the back of a promise to wage war on drugs and other crimes in the country of 100 million people. He took office on June 30 and over 3,100 people have been killed since then, mostly alleged drug users and dealers, in police operations and in vigilante killings.

Duterte had to face a lot of criticism from the United States, the European Union parliament and the United Nations over what they say are extrajudicial killings.

Earlier this month, Duterte also directed profanities at UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and US President Barack Obama, after they made similar comments about the mounting death toll in the Philippines.

This also marks her tenth overall nomination for the award, tying Mary Tyler Moore for the most overall nominations. So I certainly do promise to rebuild that wall and make Mexico pay for it".

Earlier this month, Duterte cursed President Barack Obama and said he would not allow joint patrols of disputed waters near the South China Sea with foreign powers, apparently scrapping a deal his predecessor reached with the US military.

Two days before the Philippines election, outgoing President Benigno Aquino had warned that Duterte's rising popularity was akin to that of Hitler in the 1920s and 1930s. Friday, September 16.

"I would serve notice to you now that this will be the last military exercise", he said.

"You US, EU. You can call me anything".

In a rambling speech on Friday morning, Duterte said he was under threat of being brought before an global court for genocide, but insisted he was breaking no laws in the Philippines.

"There are migrants escaping from the Middle East". Adolf Hitler massacred six million Jews in the Holocaust. "You allow them to rot and then you're anxious about the deaths of about 1,000, 2,000, 3,000 (people in the Philippines)".
