NSFW    MANILA — Philippine president Rodrigo Duterte has been criticized internationally by the U.S., U.N., E.U. and activists groups for his war on drugs, which has seen thousands of people killed outside the law.

One country that hasn’t criticized Duterte is China. Not surprisingly, the Chinese have praised Duterte’s extra judicial killings, Quartz reported.

Hua Chunying, a spokesman for the Chinese foreign ministry, said that China “appreciates president Duterte’s efforts to crack down on drug crimes and improve social security with the fundamental interests and well-being of his country and people in mind.”

Duterte’s incredibly thin skin causes him to lash out when he receives any sort of criticism. He’s already on record going off on the Pope, Ban Ki-moon and President Obama.

But what does Duterte have to say about the Chinese? He said he appreciates that “China never criticizes. They help us quietly.”

Unfortunately for Duterte, sucking to the Chinese isn’t going to help with the South China Sea. As he and the Philippines will soon learn, all money comes with strings attached.
