Duterte threat­ens to ex­pel am­bas­sadors

Star Tribune - - DEAL! -

Pres­i­dent Ro­drigo Duterte threat­ened to ex­pel am­bas­sadors rep­re­sent­ing the Euro­pean Union, sug­gest­ing that he would give them 24 hours to leave his coun­try. “You think that we are a bunch of mo­rons here,” Duterte said in an ex­ple­tive-laden speech at the pres­i­den­tial palace. “Be­cause we can have the diplo­matic chan­nel cut to­mor­row. You leave my coun­try in 24 hours. All. All of you.” His re­marks ap­peared to be a re­ac­tion to re­cent crit­i­cism of the coun­try’s war on drugs.
