While in Serbia, Orban said “we have had enough of lecturing” and “not being able to express our opinion because we are afraid that we will be morally judged.” He relayed his hope that “we will get rid of that now.”

Orban in the past had praised Trump’s tough position on migration. Orban’s own government has faced criticism for building a barbed-wire fence along its border with Serbia to stop migrant influx. Orban’s comments were translated into Serbian from Hungarian.
