In a short media conference in Davao City on Sunday, President Duterte slams and threatens to leave the United Nations after UN rapporteurs criticize and calls for his administration to stop the extrajudicial killings involved in his fight against illegal drugs.
“Maybe we’ll just have to decide to separate from the United Nations,” said President Duterte.
“When were you here the last time? Never. Except to criticize. When have you done a good deed to my country? We are contributing money,” he said,
“They should suffer the repercussions,” he added.
