MENCZER: MOMENTUM SIDED WITH DUTCH AGAINST HUNGARY

 

Opposition Momentum has taken sides with the Dutch, “who are pro-migration”, to undermine Hungary in negotiations over the EU budget and coronavirus rescue package, Tamás Menczer, a foreign ministry state secretary, said on Facebook. He said Momentum had worked against the interests of Hungary “many times”, adding that Momentum’s leaders had often voted on the side of the liberal Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, who was “attacking Hungary” at the current EU summit and attempting to deprive the country of EU funds. Menczer insisted that Rutte was a pro-migration politician who was glad to be photographed with the family of billionaire financier George Soros. “He talks about the rule of law but keeps quiet about serious, violent crimes committed by immigrants in the Netherlands,” he said.
