Hungarian PM Viktor Orban has called for an ‘anti-immigrant’ coup in the EU.
He called for ‘anti-immigration forces’ to seize power in the the European elections in May and said he would ‘fight’ French President Emmanuel Macron, who he says was leading a pro-immigration agenda.
The Hungarian PM also hailed the new partnership forged with Poland by Italy’s Matteo Salvini who challenged the ‘French-German axis’ on Wednesday during a visit to Warsaw.

Orban called Salvini his ‘hero,’ after the Italian leader said there would be a ‘new plan for Europe’ at talks with Jaroslaw Kaczynski, the head of Poland’s governing right-wing Law and Justice (PiS) party.
Orban said Salvini’s stance was ‘brave.’
‘He was the first politician in Europe who said that migration can also be stopped at sea, that made him a hero in my eyes.’ The 55-year-old Hungarian leader said.
Orban, who won a third consecutive term in April with an electoral campaign based on anti-immigration policies, also said that he had ‘great hopes’ for cooperation between Italy and Poland.
He gave full support to an Italian-Polish initiative to form a right-wing alliance for the European Parliament where he hopes anti-immigration parties will gain a majority.
The Polish and Italian ruling nationalist parties currently sit in different European Parliament groupings to Orban’s Fidesz, which is a member of the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP).
But Orban said he sees that ‘anti-immigration forces capable of governing are searching for different modes of cooperation… and that is good news for both us (Fidesz) and the EPP.’
Last September the European Parliament voted to launch unprecedented legal action against Budapest over alleged ‘breaches of democratic values’.
Orban said that ‘for the first time the European elections will decide on a question that touches all of Europe, that is, immigration.’https://archive.fo/Y0phJhttps://newspunch.com/hungarys-pm-viktor-orban-calls-for-anti-immigrant-forces-to-take-over-eu/
