Prime Minister Viktor Orban is interpreting Trump’s statement as “the end of multilateralism” and as permission for Hungary to also put itself in first place.

Orban was an early supporter of Trump and had praised his immigration policies.

Speaking Monday at an economic conference organized by the National Bank of Hungary, Orban also implied that conservative Francois Fillon is his preferred candidate to become the next president of France and supported his desire for a new military alliance in Europe.

 

Orban said this new alliance could give Europe greater self-confidence and the ability to negotiate with all parties, including Russia.
