I'm not really all that mysterious

Trump vs. Duterte

After Trump declared the Philippines a terrorist nation, Philippine Congressman Joey Salceda has proposed banning Trump from the Philippines.

Trump has no major business in the Philippines, but developer Century Properties Group Inc is building a $150-million Trump Tower, a high-rise residential building under license from the American real estate mogul.

In a bill filed in Manila’s House of Representatives, Congressman Joey Salceda said, “There is no feasible basis or reasonable justification to the wholesale labeling of Filipinos as coming from a ‘terrorist state’ or that they will be a Trojan horse.”

Meanwhile, Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is threatening to declare martial law:

President Rodrigo Duterte took offense with Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno’s letter [expressing concern over his list of judges, local government officials, policemen, and soldiers allegedly involved in drugs], saying he did not appreciate being “ordered” around by the Supreme Court.

Duterte said, if Sereno does not appreciate his methods in purging the country of drugs, would she rather he declared martial law?

As much as I hate Trump, Trump hasn’t had people summarily executed without any charged or threatened to declare martial law… yet. But I think Trump is just a kleptocrat scam artist who will skip the country after he’s bankrupted us while Duterte has all the makings of a ruthless bloodyhanded dictator.1
