So the Times says Duterte claims that Trump endorses the antidrug crackdown?

What, are we playing telephone?

New York Times is fake news. It's as simple as that.

Q*Bert:
So even if you support the death penalty for drug dealers (AND users), you Trump-loving assholes have no issue whatsoever with people just being executed without a trial, not only by police but by anyone who thinks that found a guilty person? Because that's what's happening here if you didn't understand that.

Yeah, how crazy to want the government to not go around arbitrarily murdering people!

Also, if you are capable of reading, it's not just drug dealers who are victims, it's drug users, and *suspected* drug users, and also just random people who might not have anything to do with drugs.

@qbert trump lover here. What's going on in the Philippines is horrible. But last time I checked, Trump hadn't endorsed it other than in Duterte's imagination.

Breaking News:
At the rate of homicides given the article, Metro Manila's per capita homicide rate is still only 4.5, whereas Philly's per capita homicide is around 18.6 (per 100k)

Gruber is from Philly. Does he think Philly is a travesty?

Murders in Philly are not officially endorsed by the government.

Big difference.

So yeah, I think the Trump-endorsement angle might be being overplayed here. We don't know for sure what Trump feels about it because it's a description of a call through Duterte...who is crazy and a liar, so who knows what was actually said.

My anger isn't with Trump here, it's these guys (above) saying this stuff is just fine. And most of the people who have this "kill em all!" attitude (ramped up to extreme levels in the last few months) are people who enthusiastically voted for Trump.

So, I'm sorry if I lumped you in with them.

Da bullshit:
Who can say whether the murders in the Philippines are endorsed by anyone?

Are the killing of criminal blacks endorsed by the government in the US? Sure the press complains, and government officials say no, but seriously.

Well, if Trump did not say it, then he should have denounced the claim and stated his actual views on the matter.

You don't just leave statements like that unchallenged.

Yeah, just like Hillary immediately responded to and challenged the FBI investigation of her emails.
