    Duterte will make one hell of a president for Philippines and will kill anyone that sell drugs. Good for the Philippines people. Maybe the people of Philippines can have work to feed their family now. Good luck president Duterte. And Robredo will do a hell of a good job as Vice president for Philippines. Good luck to both of you.

    For those who think Duterte will bring law and order to the Philippines, you are dead wrong. I give it a year before the rumors of corruptness begins, another before the Pilipino people realize that they elected a monster. Hopefully, it won’t be too late to save our motherland. I understand the need for more law but not one that may result in the deaths of many innocents. To shoot first and ask questions later sounds more like martial law.

    Although Robredo continually attacked Marcos with lies she can never proved as a lawyer, he never said anything negative against her. Even the media proved their position as bias as they can be against Marcos, he never said anything negative. The worst part is that everyone is/are desperate in favor of Robredo they have to change the hash code…
