Duterte is Like Hitler – level 2

03-10-2016 15:00

The Philippines’ President Duterte compared himself to Hitler in a speech. He said that Hitler killed three million Jews. He would be happy to kill three million drug addicts in the Philippines. He thinks that this would finish the problem of his country and save the next generation.

The USA and the EU are concerned about Duterte’s war on drugs. Since he became President in May, thousands of vigilante killings have happened there.

Difficult words: drug addict (a person addicted to drugs), concerned (worried), vigilante killing (killing people without legal authority).

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