WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Donald Trump and Rodrigo Duterte were both elected in 2016, but the U.S. President will only serve a four-year term compared to the Philippine President’s six.
Now, Trump wants to change his current term to six years, following that of Duterte’s.
It all began when Trump supporter and head of Liberty University (an Evangelical Christian University) Jerry Falwell, Jr. said that two years need to be added to the President’s current term as payback for “time stolen by this corrupt failed coup.” (Referring to the Mueller investigation).
The American President not only agreed with Falwell. He also argued that “if a former U.S. colony like the Philippines can have a six-year term President, why can’t we?”
He then urged his minions in the Republican Party to start the process of amending the U.S. Constitution.
