President Duterte among “strongmen” in the new Time Magazine cover story

President Rodrigo Duterte has been included on the cover of the May 14 issue of TIME magazine international edition.

The article, “Rise of the Strongman” is on a global trend in favor of “more muscular, assertive leadership” embodied by US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“In every region of the world, changing times have boosted public demand for more muscular, assertive leadership. These tough-talking populists promise to protect ‘us’ from ‘them.’ Depending on who’s talking, ‘them’ can mean the corrupt elite or the grasping poor; foreigners or members of racial, ethnic or religious minorities. Or disloyal politicians, bureaucrats, bankers or judges. Or lying reporters,” the TIME article reads.

“Out of this divide, a new archetype of leader has emerged. We’re now in the strongman era.”
Duterte remains popular in the Philippines, where many seem to agree with the government’s heavy-handed campaign against illegal drugs.

Three in every four Filipinos said they have “much trust” in Duterte, down from 83 percent recorded in December. Ten percent of the respondents said they have “little trust” in the president while 14 percent were undecided.

Duterte has also railed against criticism and concern from foreign countries and international organizations, telling them to stop meddling in Philippine affairs.

In March, the Philippines announced it is withdrawing from the International Criminal Court because of supposed meddling by the court’s prosecutor, who had announced a preliminary examination into alleged crimes against humanity in the war on drugs.

    3. This is the season of GOOD winning against EVIL. These strongmen leaders are now loved by their FELLOWMEN even with the continuous negative ATTACKS in media. ACCUSSATIONS are HURLED against them through MISLEADING OPINIONS and FAKE NEWS.
      This is the ARMAGEDDON of our times where TRUTH will defeat THE LIES OF THE UNJUST AND EVIL parts of our society. These leaders are clearly sent by our Divine Providence as the ANSWERS to a Decades-long of prayers and requests by the FAITHFUL
      These leaders will make people AWARE of the Evils of our Churches, Government Institutions, Businesses, and Justice. But the EVIL Ones will make a fight against them by all means but will surely FAIL. GOD has finally opened this Season of TRUTH to all peoples on earth.
