VIDEO: Philippines President Duterte Rips Trudeau For Drug War Criticism

“It angers me when you are a foreigner, you do not know what exactly is happening in this country. You don’t even investigate,” said Duterte.

After Justin Trudeau tried to make it sound like their meeting went well, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte ripped into Trudeau for bringing up human rights issues with the drug war in that country.

“I said, ‘I will not explain. It is a personal and official insult,” said Duterte, adding, “It angers me when you are a foreigner, you do not know what exactly is happening in this country. You don’t even investigate.”

While Duterte has been criticized by human rights organizations for the toughness of the drug war in that country, it should be noted that the Philippines has had a massive problem with crime, and Duterte remains highly popular – in large part because of how he has taken very strong action.

Here’s what Trudeau said:

Judging the Philippines by the same standard we would apply in Canada doesn’t make sense, since the scale of their crime problem is far more severe, and thus requires far more severe solutions.

Once again, Trudeau is doing the usual virtue-signalling on the world stage. Criticizing Duterte over human rights is what the establishment expects people to do, so Trudeau did it.

He could have been far more constructive by offering support for the Philippines fight against ISIS, but that would require actually taking action and taking a tough stance against terrorism. Why would Trudeau do that when he could take some selfies and virtue-signal instead?

Did anybody see his socks?

Trudeau should be looking into ALL the Problems that he has Created in Canada Instead of Interfering and Bringing up Human Rights Problems in a Country that has a Very Severe Drug and Crime Problems. Most Filipinos are Satisfied with Duterte and Duterte Remains Very Popular among the Citizens of the Philippines. Filipinos are very happy with Duterte being Very Tough on these Criminals, and that is all that Counts. Trudeau should be looking after ALL the Problems that he has Created in Canada in just two years and Mind his own Business. At least Duterte is fighting Terrorism, unlike… Read more »

That preening jackass has simply got to be voted out next election. I’m tired of his moralizing.

This is one problem with globalism… is global governance and it gives interlopers the perceived right to interfere in the internal affairs of sovereign states……
When a city can make trade deals with a foreign power….that is treason…..undermining and subverting the national government…..When Justin addresses and chastises the President of the Philippines about their drug problem and how it is being resolved…….this wee dope smoker needs to be put on a plane and unceremoniously removed from the tarmac…….Throw the bum out!
He’s a disgrace….

Oh fer godsake! Look at how Trudeau cozies up to China, one of the worst human rights violators there is. Look how he wants to integrate Chinese business with Canada, importing their masses and meanwhile selling off our technology and resources to them. Trudeau is the worst kind of hypocrite and self aggrandizing phoney.

“It angers me when you are a foreigner, you do not know what exactly is happening in this country. You don’t even investigate,” said Duterte.

Mr Duterte, Trudeau doesn’t even know what exactly is happening in his own country, because he can’t be bothered to investigate!

btw, JT has certainly mastered the bullsh/t spin talk (if you remove the ‘Uh’s).


Trudeau is incredibly arrogant and self important. A baby boy child in diapers lecturing the adults in the room.

Note his head shake body language’ A quick not of his head followed with his stupid grin, in effect saying “I have spoken and I have decided there is nothing more to say”.


How shameless can one get? This fool doesn’t just want to stop at ruining Canada, he has now started poking his ugly nose into the affairs of foreign countries. But I am happy the way he was taken to task by the Philippines leader….he just stopped short of slapping JT….LOL


Once again the Prime Monster is virtue signaling for the cameras. He should again be asked why his hero, Fidel Castro, is on a pedestal after murdering thousands of innocents during the Cuban revolution. China suppresses freedoms, jails and eliminates dissidents and draw praise from the PM for ‘getting things done”. Duarte cleans up drug trade and terrorists and draws Trudeau reprimand? Way to go Justin, you twit.
