Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte has given the voters an ultimatum: a killer of criminals or a thief who steals public funds?
The presidential aspirant asks in an obvious hint towards his rival Vice President Jejomar Binay who has been facing criminal allegations.
Duterte said according to the Inquirer: "Mamili kayo, killer ng kriminal o yung magnanakaw sa kaban (ng bayan) pati yung asawa, yung anak?"
(Choose. A killer of criminals or a thief, who along with his wife and son, steals public funds?)
The Davao City Mayor has been entering a word war against his rivals, as each tried to defame the other in the eyes of the public.
Vice President Jejomar Binay, who in recent surveys has been trailing behind Poe in third place, has consistently criticized Duterte for the latter's willingness to use violence to curb crime, even in the expense of innocent lives.
