Duterte jokes about making Europeans helpers in PH: Tutal ginawa tayong ‘boy’ for 400 years
President Rodrigo Duterte hopes there will come a time that Europeans will be employed as helpers of Filipinos.
In a speech in Malacañang Wednesday (June 13), Duterte said Filipinos might become rich enough to pay Europeans to work for them in the future.
“Magyaman rin tayo, so mag-import tayo ng ano European, French, Español? Gawain natin mga boy itong mga buang na ito,” he said during the signing of a memorandum of agreement on free higher education.
“Eh tutal ginawa man nila tayong boy diba? We were subjugated for 400 years. Why should we not also give the courtesy in return? Babagsak rin ‘yan,” he said.
Duterte said the only disadvantage he sees with having Europeans as helpers is the affair they might have with Filipinas.
“Pwede mga Italyano, Español. Ang problema niyan mga asawa natin baka magtanan tuloy,” he said.
