    Graduated from the Lyceum of the Philippines University (1968)
    Mayor of Davao City (1988-1998; 2001-2010; 2013-2016)
    Served as Vice Mayor of Davao City, from 2010 to 2013

    Member of the Philippine Democratic Party (PDP-Laban)
    He is a serial adulterer, currently in a common-law marriage.
    He planted rumors that he was having an affair with 2016 Miss Universe Pia Wurtzbach.
    He sells himself as a populist, but was born entrenched into the political establishment (his father and cousin both served as acting-Mayor of Philippine cities).
    His favorite phrase is 'son of a bitch,' sometimes translated as 'whore' (on the receiving end of the expletive have been President Barack Obama and Pope Francis I).
    He was accused of killing a government agent with an Uzi submachine gun prior to being elected President.
    He admitted to throwing a Chinese rape/murder suspect out of a helicopter.
    His ties to the Davao Death Squad (known for extrajudicial killings) earned him the nickname 'Punisher' during his terms as Mayor.
    He led a violent anti-drug crackdown, which has claimed an estimated 7,000 lives.
    He is a walking gaffe-machine; prone to outrageous lines to make Donald Trump sound like Dennis Kucinich by comparison.
    Some of his more jaw-dropping comments have concerned human rights violations, including his insistence that 'journalists aren't exempt from assassinations.'
    For example, he said: 'Forget the laws on human rights - if I make it to the presidential palace, I will do just what I did as mayor. You drug pushers, hold-up men and do-nothings you better go out. Because I'd kill you.'
    He used a Holocaust analogy in the context of combatting the illegal drug trade, jokingly comparing himself to Hitler.
    He was universally condemned for making an insensitive comment about the rape/murder of an Australian missionary which occurred during his first term as Mayor ('I was angry .... But she was so beautiful. The mayor should have been first').
    He's a biking enthusiast.
    He was sexually abused by a priest when he was a minor.
    His maternal grandfather was a Chinese immigrant.
    He is fluent in Cebuano, Tagalog, English, and Spanish.
    He lists his favorite novelists as Robert Ludlum and Sidney Sheldon.
    He has a candid and forthcoming 'frankness' that (can be) refreshing.
    He apologized profusely for his 'son of a bitch/whore' attacks on Obama and the Pope, citing it as merely part of his 'tough talker' persona.
    He was diagnosed with Buerger's disease, which is an inflammation of blood vessels.
    He is one of the longest-serving mayors in the history of the Philippines.
    He became the oldest person to assume the Philippine presidency (at 71), eclipsing Sergio Osmena (at 65).
    He has tried to downplay similarities and comparisons between himself and Trump, insisting 'I am not a bigot' (whatever else he is).
    He was pegged as the cause of deteriorating relations between the U.S. and the Philippines, but news that he had been invited for a joint meeting with President Trump to discuss North Korea's nuclear proliferation was met with heavy criticism (Apr. 30, 2017).
