CLINTON SPEAKS OUT AGAINST DUTERTE - NewspaperPH


The daughter of losing U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton slammed President Rodrigo Duterte on social media, calling him a "murderous thug." In a tweet, Chelsea Clinton denounced Duterte for uttering a rape joke while giving a pep talk to soldiers on May 26. The President was in Iligan City, meeting deployed and wounded soldiers sent to fight the Maute group in Marawi City, some 40 kilometers away. The Clinton Foundation board member is the latest political figure to criticize Duterte's joke during his speech to the 2nd Mechanized Infantry (Magbalantay) Brigade of the Philippine Army in Iligan City. Gabriela Women's Party called the joke the "height of insensitivity" as it might embolden soldiers to "systematically use rape as a tool of war and subject women to further abuse and impunity."
