Don't go to the Philippines right now.

They just elected a psychopath President who randomly kills criminals and innocent people, from locals to foreigners alike.

Avoid at all costs.

Hey we are in the philippines right now and true, even the locals don't like the guy who won the presidency but still it is a beautiful country to visit. We are having the time of our lives and I don't think we are in any danger if we stay out of trouble.

Hi, Igotyourbackpack is right. There's nothing to worry about even if Duterte won as president of the Philippines. Traveling to Philippines is still worth a try and it's not him you should be worried about. Visit places that are usually visited by foreigners too. You could try Boracay especially if you love beach and night life. You could travel around this small island as well. There are cheap hostels and motor rental shops in that place. Check this website out: Book2wheel.

Duterte fights against the root cause of crime which is drugs and corruption. Only the bad guys are afraid of him and most Filpinos consider him as a hero.

I would suggest visiting the Philippines anytime.

One certainly has to feel sorry for the Americans with the choice they have this year and Yes you should certainly avoid America if he wins (unless you are a builder specialising in building walls)
