Impact of President Duterte on tourism

Has anyone become concerned or had issue yet or had any problems with any of the actions of the new President in the Philippines?

Re: Impact of President Duterte on tourism

The Young Turks news commentary show had a segment that discussed the recent revelation that 45 people had been killed recently by the police.

While I was in the Philippines recently for a few months (January - May) I spoke with many people about the election, which took place while I was there. Everyone acknowledged the infamoius death squads and seemed OK or supportive of them. The propaganda by Duterte supporters says they only kill people who deserve to be killed.
