Duterte: 'Happy to Slaughter' Three Million Drug Addicts
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte lashed out at unnamed critics he said have compared him to Adolf Hitler and have likened his anti-drugs campaign to genocide. "You’re worried about the death of about 1,000, 2,000, 3,000," Duterte said in a speech early on Friday, referring to the number of people killed since he launched his war on illegal drugs. "Hitler massacred 3 million Jews. Now there is 3 million, there’s a 3 million drug addict. There are. I’d be happy to slaughter them," he said, according to a transcript provided by the president’s office.
