European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s “lecturing” others about Christian Democracy “is a bad joke”, the Hungarian foreign minister said on Sunday.
Peter Szijjarto insisted that Juncker “has not been a Christian Democrat for a long time and he is in fact a liberal, pro-migration politician”.
“Juncker has laid wreaths on Marx’s monument and commemorated Fidel Castro,” he said. In the meantime, “migrants flooded Europe and the Brits left the EU under his presidency,” the minister added.
Earlier in the day, Germany’s Welt am Sonntag quoted Juncker as saying that the policies of Hungary’s ruling Fidesz were incompatible with Christian Democratic values.
Answering a question why he allowed Prime Minister Viktor Orban “get away with his anti-EU rants”, Juncker said he was locked in a dispute with Orban and he had pressed for Fidesz’s exclusion from the European People’s Party.
In a Facebook post, State Secretary for EU Relations Judit Varga called it “particularly scary” that Juncker doesn’t consider migration to be Europe’s biggest problem. According to Varga, the Brussels’ elite is completely out of touch with reality and the European citizens.
