Supporters of presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte cheer at a rally in Manila.

Front-running candidate Rodrigo Duterte is known for his profanity-laden speeches and has been likened to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. He made international headlines last month when he said that an Australian missionary who was gang raped and killed during a 1989 prison siege was so beautiful that he "should have been the first" to assault her. The Australian and U.S. ambassadors criticized that comment, and Duterte told them to shut up.
