The "Trump of the Philippines" Wins Its Presidency

Hosted by

This week's votes have been counted, and a mayor called "the punisher," who's joked about rape and killing, is now the president-elect of the Philippines. Today, Rodrigo Duterte promised to stamp out "criminality, drugs and corruption" in six months -- using politically loaded language. "I will be a dictator no doubt about it, but only against the forces of evil." Steven Rood, the Asia Foundation's country representative for the Philippines, joins us from Manila.
