Hungarian PM Vows to Fight 'Leader of Pro-Immigrant Forces in EU' Macron

France's Emmanuel Macron and Hungary's Viktor Orban have been engaged in a months-long political war of words amid the French president's threats to sanction EU member states which turn away migrants and the Hungarian prime minister's hard-line position on the migrant question.

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said that he would welcome anti-immigration parties gaining a majority at the upcoming elections to the European Parliament in May.

In a news conference on Thursday, Orban described French President Emmanuel Macron as the leader of pro-immigration forces in Europe, and vowed to fight him and what he stood for.

"There is no denying that Emmanuel Macron is an important figure, moreover, the leader of the pro-immigration forces", he said. "It's nothing personal, but a matter of our countries' future. If what he wants with regard to migration materialises in Europe, that would be bad for Hungary. Therefore, I must fight him," Orban said.
