ANGRY Duterte to UN Human Rights Officials : COME HERE AND SOLVE THE PROBLEM YOURSELF
Calling UN human rights officials “sons of whores,” President Duterte challenged the United Nations to take a stab at solving the country’s narcotics problem that has produced more than 3 million drug users and affected 27 percent of the nation’s 42,000 barangays, mostly in urban centers.
In a late-night press conference on Wednesday, Mr. Duterte cited the 600,000 drug users or dealers who have surrendered since he came into office June 30 and launched his war on illegal drugs to fulfill his election campaign promise to eliminate the scourge in three to six months of his presidency.

“Do you think it’s a joke? It’s a joke for you to tell me about human rights. Come here and solve the problem yourself. I will fund you … . I will buy even your toilet paper,” he said.
The President said he was facing the country’s problem, and lashed back at the world body.
“Gago kayo (You are jerks),” he said. “Don’t keep on talking and talking. I am facing a problem here—600,000, and you would talk like that.”
