Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has vowed to confront and if necessary kill any officials who are involved in the country’s drug trade.

During an oath-taking ceremony of over 200 appointees on Monday, the 71-year-old leader said that the mayors should resign and ‘make a clean break of everything’ or he would ‘really kill you’.

‘I will call the mayors, I will lock them in so it’s just us,’ he said in his speech. ‘I will really tell them, ‘The list I gave you is this thick. Look for your name there, mayor’.

‘Look for your name in the narco-list. Son of a whore, if your name is there, you have a problem’

‘Either you resign or make a clean break of everything, come up with clean nose and we’ll talk,’ he added.

‘The first thing that I would do is to deprive you of the supervisory powers over the police, second is I will remove all of your security detail,’ he said.

‘I might go down [in] history as the butcher. It’s up to you,’ he added.

Duterte was elected earlier this year partly because he promised to get tough on criminals in the Philippines.
