Turkish President Recep Erdogan has urged all Turks living in Europe to have at least five kids, insisting they are “the future” of the continent.
According to RT, Erdogan made his remarks while campaigning earlier today as part of Turkey’s upcoming referendum – a “yes” vote in which would grant him increased power.
“Go live in better neighborhoods,” he said. “Drive the best cars. Live in the best houses. Make not three, but five children. Because you are the future of Europe. That will be the best response to the injustices against you.”
RT states this is just the latest rant in a series aimed at Europe, which recently blocked Turkish ministers from campaigning for the referendum there.
For example, earlier this week, Erdogan accused The Netherlands of terrorism after the nation used water cannons to break up Turkish rioters in Rotterdam.
