THE Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has expressed support for Donald Trump’s “valiant” security plans to control immigration in a bid to fight terrorism.
The Hungarian leader linked increased security threats to increased migration and endorsed Mr Trump’s proposals to beat terrorism.
Mr Orban is known as one of Europe’s most outspoken politicians and has even recently called for a razor wire fence to be built along Hungary’s southern border to stop migrants entering.
Mr Trump wants a wall to be built along America’s border with Mexico.
In a speech, Mr Orban said: “I am not a Donald Trump campaigner.
“I never thought I would ever entertain the thought that, of the open options, he (Trump) would be better for Europe and for Hungary.
“But I listened to the candidate and I must tell you he made three proposals to combat terrorism. And as a European I could have hardly articulated better what Europe needs.”
Since Mr Orban came into power, President Obama’s administration has criticised Hungary for alleged state corruption, failure to observe freedom of religion and not following the rule of law.
Mr Orban said: “Migration is a threat. It increases terrorism and crime. Massive migration changes Europe’s cultural profile. Massive migration dismantles national cultures. If this standpoint fails to become a European stance, we won’t be able to act.”
Mr Orban is very popular in Hungary because of his tough stance on migration.
Hungary’s premier has been critical of the European Union’s leadership in Brussels, and has said that each country should have the authority to make its own decisions on issues, such as migration.
