"Tatawagin ko 'yung mga mayor, i-lock ko, kami-kami lang. Sabihin ko talaga, 'Ganoon kakapal 'yung 'pinakita ko sa inyo. Hanapin mo 'yung pangalan mo diyan, mayor. Putang ina, 'pag nandiyan pangalan mo, may problema ka,'" Duterte said.
"Either you resign or make a clean break of everything, come up with clean nose and we'll talk," he added. "I might go down [in] history as the butcher. Eh bahala kayo," said Duterte.
Duterte said that mayors who are involved to the drug trade will lose some privileges that come under their position.
"The first thing that I would do is to deprive you of the supervisory powers over the police, second is tanggalin ko lahat ng security mo," he said.
