If we have Duterte, US has Trump.
Many of us especially those with relatives in the US can relate to this thread. But sooner or later, the entire nation, too. The Philippines' economy (i;e. labor, macro etc.) will surely be affected as well.
But that's another story.
Let's talk about the current ones. About the most powerful leader in the world, Donald Trump. Ten days after his inauguration (January 20, 2017), it seems like a hell for those who are being hit by his “Immigration executive order” or the anti-(illegal) immigrants law.

Anyway, his latest “screw it” moment (rage) was a “dumb deal” with the Australia’s prime minister over the refugee resettlement. That was after his meeting with the UK prime minister, Theresa May. Alas, the latter had been castigated for her allegedly fawning behavior towards the new US president.
