They might want to consider putting a speaker in his mouth to control what comes out, too.

A: How many business leaders does it take to put on an earpiece?

Not just earphone but tiny speaker will be attached in front of his face. I don't know Japan use or not but there is another equipment Japanese company created and media use. Opposite of frontline of the speakers, large video screen that displays contents of speech. American people are familiar because They watch presidential election debates.

That's a pretty hip shirt, or jacket thing he's wearing. (Mel Brooks - "When you're the king") As far as that comment above that the pres "is not a bad guy" the commentor doesn't seem to get the fact that the police over there, ( and I assume the military) have no problems killing people. But as it is in Indonesia, there's a huge amount of corruption in those forces. Drug addicts or recreational users? Extortion or torture? Sweeping a neighborhood of assumed dealers also means eliminating competition. Too much centralized power will lead to fascism. Fish heads, fascism, what's for dinner?

The people who are installing earphone must be audio equipment experts.wireless and mike is connected. He is now experience superiority ooh Japanese advanced tech. Hope he likes Japan just like other southern Asian countries.

@Rica88 while I do understand that Dutuerte is not corrupted as your previous officials whom people who throw money at them for favors, he still needs to respect law and order. Saying, "only bad guys are being killed" without going through a legitimate judicial process to determine whether or not a person is actually guilty of doing what someone says they're doing is very stupid. Without this process someone who may not be a drug dealer/distributer can be killed and labelled as "a bad guy" even though they'd be sentenced to death for being labelled with a criminal charge they didn't even commit.

Why not deal with the corrupt politicians first? The pattern is always easy to follow. Starts with greed, then corruption, and ultimately... destruction.

@toneThe speakers usually obey engineers' instructions.: thank you: Philippine people speaks English so I assume she explained in English.

But when technical words are involved, tehnollgistsvspeaks in their English, the translator speak with their perfect accented English.
