Nobody would have believed a year ago, that the UK would exit from the European Union and “the Clinton clan, the traditional party of American intellectuals” would fall out of power, Orbán said. According to Orbán, there was a “rebellion” in the world’s two model democracies which will continue in 2017 and western democracies will go through a “year of rebellion”.

But as he said in the interview: Hungary can be an island of stability because “we have asked for people’s opinion and protected the country from illegal migration in 2015 and 2016,” he said.

He were also mention the geopolitical situation in Hungary :“We are people with origins in the east but we belong to the western world”, he said, describing Hungarians. As a result, it is in the country’s interest that the west should be successful and that Europe should “not want to change us, but accept and respect that we are Hungarians and will remain Hungarians”. Accordin g to Orbán, not everything should be taken over from western Europe and “everything that’s bad must be resolutely rejected”.
