Duterte is Like Hitler – level 1

03-10-2016 15:00

Rodrigo Duterte is the president of the Philippines. He gives a speech. He talks about Hitler. He says that he is like Hitler.

He says that Hitler killed 3 million Jews. He would like to kill 3 million people. Not Jews, but he wants to kill drug addicts in the Philippines. He thinks that this would be good for his country.

His speech makes the USA and the EU worried.

Difficult words: gives a speech (talk to many people about something), killed (the past of “kill”), drug addict (a person who is addicted to drugs – they cannot stop taking drugs).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
