Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said the European Union has maintained its unity and won; George Soros lost and it would be time for Europeans to “finally send him home to America”.
“Soros is shedding crocodile tears and while this will not return the money that the speculator has stolen from millions of people, families and businesses, it does provide some modest satisfaction,” PM Orbán said in response to a recent opinion piece that the US financier posted on the commentary website Project Syndicate. “The most corrupt man and network in the world” has good reason to be disappointed because Europe has not surrendered and “Soros’s grandiose plan” has been suspended by the European Council, PM Orbán added.
The spotlight is now on budget resources, the recovery fund, and who has access to what and how, he said. PM Orbán said that what had actually been at stake at this week’s EU summit in Brussels was who would govern Europe in the future. “Will Europe be governed by the governments elected by the citizens of Member States and their council, or will Soros succeed in building a new power structure?” PM Orbán said. The decision of the European Council this week was an open declaration of opposition to “Soros’s attempt to take power”, PM Orbán said.
