Title: President of the Philippines
Age: 77 years old
Duterte was born in a political family. His father was the Governor of Nanna Maohang Province of Mindanao Island. When he was young, he was very belligerent. He once admitted to the media that he had killed someone at the age of 16, and even shot his classmate in college because he taunted Duterte as a hillbilly.
Elected as mayor of Davao in 1988, he is known for his iron-fist governance, and is even suspected of murdering hundreds of criminals through contract killing. In 2016, he was elected President of the Philippines and launched a violent war on drugs against drug lords. More than 5,800 drug suspects were killed, but a great number of them lost their lives because of “extrajudicial executions.” (Police forces can directly shoot the suspect should there be any form of resistance.) When the COVID-19 pandemic was at its height, he even ordered the police force and the army to directly shoot and kill those who violated pandemic control measures.
Duterte always does whatever he likes and often makes controversial statements. Therefore, he was referred to as the Donald Trump of the Philippines. In terms of foreign policy, he averts the past pro-American approach, and sometimes criticizes US presidents (especially Barack Obama) while passing on friendly messages to China and Russia from time to time. However, overall speaking, Duterte does not bet on one side only, which quite fits his I-do-what-I-want style.
