In fighting back against criticisms from the United States, President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday said three out of five Americans are idiots.
"Ang problema kasi sa puti, itong Amerikanong ulol.. [for] every five Americans kasi, ang tatlo diyan idyoto, dalawa lang ang tama ang utak," Duterte said during a speech at the Convergence of Nanay Volunteers as Community Drug Watch in Pampanga.
(The problem with these white people, these American blockheads, is that three out of five of them are idiots, and only two are in their right minds.)
"Tumahimik kayong mga Amerikano kayo," he added.
(You Americans should just shut up.)
The President was reacting once again to alleged threats to cut aid to the Philippines because of his administration's bloody campaign against illegal drugs, which has claimed over 3,000 lives.
"If you are destroying my country, I will kill you," he said.
