Good Company

Donald Trump  graciously meets  the crazy Filipino  criminal of (drug) war  Rodrigo Duarte...who urges his people to "kill a drug addict if you know one"  and  is extremely proud of  having done the same, personally killing 'druggies" and "criminals" when he was mayor of his home city of Davao.

Duarte the killer
