Donald Trump’s Response To Mayor Rod Duterte: ‘As President, I Will Deport All Filipinos’

imageMIAMI, Florida (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Philippine presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte threatened to sever ties with the United States once he is elected on May 9 this year, and U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump is thanking him for it.

Duterte made the threat after U.S. Ambassador to the Philippines Philip Goldberg criticized the mayor for comments in a viral video in which he said he should have been first in line in the serial rape of murdered Australian missionary Jacqueline Hamill. Duterte made the same threat to Australia whose ambassador also condemned the mayor’s comments.

Upon learning of Duterte’s threat, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Trump thanked Duterte for making his job as president much easier.

Trump has consistently said in his campaign that as president he will deport all undocumented immigrants living in the U.S.

The real estate mogul said he will not only deport TNTs (the Filipino term for undocumented immigrants), but also revoke the naturalization papers of Filipino Americans.

Trump, however, said that he is open to U.S.-based Filipinos to apply for political asylym if they can prove that going back to the Philippines will subject them to persecution under a Duterte administration.

Latest census figures show that there are about 4 Million Filipinos now living in the United States.

DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, if elected president, will build at 55-ft. wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Philippine presidential candidate Rodrigo Dutere, if elected, is aiming much higher.

Recent statements by the Davao City mayor challenged both the U.S. and Australia to sever their ties with the Philippines if he gets elected president.  He was reacting to the Australian and American ambassadors’ criticism of his video clip in which he joked about the serial rape and murder of a female Australian missionary, saying “the mayor should have been first in line.”

Today, Duterte promised that if elected president, he will build a 71-ft. wall around the Philippine islands to keep foreign governments from interfering with the country’s and his administration’s domestic policies.

Why 71? That’s how old he is.
