TAP – The election in the Philippines was won by Rodrigo Duterte promising a war on drugs and crime.  He has gone about carrying out that war since the day he was sworn in, with hundreds of drug dealers being killed, and other criminals.  Generals and mayors involved in crime were given the chance to dec,are themselves, or face elimination if they resisted.  Prison based crime lords have been moved from their little communities where prison guards served them like their masters.  The battle isn’t over yet, but people report a dramatic fall-off in crime nationwide.  Duterte only started his real war against drugs at the end of May 2016.  Donald Trump is proposing something very similar for the USA.  In the Philippines the voters wanted an end to rule of the nation by drug gangs.  Will the USA voters react in the same way?


Trump Vows War on Crime Syndicates Terrorizing US Cities

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump pledged to destroy all the major criminal syndicates terrorizing communities across the United States if elected president.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Opinion polls have shown Trump falling behind his opponent, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in recent weeks. However, new results from pollster John Zogby show him almost closing the gap with her among “Millennial” voters in the 25 to 35 age bracket.

The US presidential election is scheduled to take place on November 8.

“I am going to break up the gangs, the cartels, the criminal syndicates terrorizing our communities all over our country,” Trump told a rally in West Bend in the US state of Wisconsin on Tuesday night. “To every criminal I say, ‘Your free reign will soon come crashing to an end.”

Trump also promised to condemn all forms of racism, bias and intolerance and to seek to unify the American people.

“We will reject bigotry, hatred and oppression in all its forms and seek a future as one American people… I am with you, I will fight for you and I will win for you,” he said.
