I am a Dictator – Pres. Duterte

In order to put the country in order, the strongman President Rodrigo Duterte admitted in public that he is a dictator.

In his speech in in front of the former communist rebels in Malacañang he said in Bisaya, “If you say dictator, I will be dictator. Because if I will not be a dictator, nothing will happen to this country,”

He added, “I had to. Besides you have chosen me as your President. Why won’t you follow me when my dreams are all for you?”

In previous speeches, Duterte had denied that he was turning into a dictator just like the late strongman Ferdinand Marcos.
