‘I MUST fight him’ Hungary’s Orban warns Macron he will RESIST EU ‘pro-immigration forces’

HUNGARIAN Prime Minister Viktor Orban has vowed to stand up to Europe’s “pro-immigration forces” led by Emmanuel Macron, warning the French leader: “I must fight you”.

Mr Orban, whose right-wing government has presided over a crackdown on immigration, said his issue with Mr Macron was “nothing personal” but that he had a duty to oppose him on the issue.

Speaking at a press conference earlier today, the Hungarian firebrand said: “There is no denying that Emmanuel Macron is an important figure, moreover, the leader of the pro-immigration forces.

“It is nothing personal, but a matter of our countries’ future

“If what he wants with regards to migration materialises in Europe, that would be bad for Hungary, therefore I must fight him.”

Mr Orban’s warning to the French leader comes as other EU countries including Italy and Poland look to shift the balance of power in Brussels in this year’s European Parliament elections.
