The US President Donald trump and the Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte there are some similarities. Both came to power by promising the voters to shake up the political establishment. Both refuse to yield, regardless of how sharp the discussion. The two leaders showered his critics with sharp observations and show a strong aversion to the predecessor trump – Barack Obama.
