Poland and Hungary: Trumpism in the European Union

Although Trump is going to be ousted on January 20th (and hopefully locked up soon thereafter) the spirit of Trumpism will not. I am referring to right wing extremists in Europe, specifically the PMs of Poland and Hungary. They have caught some attention for their so called “LGBTQ free zones” (accompanied with dumb statements about gays) but recently, they have managed to become even worse human beings. Poland and Hungary, as members of the EU, have vetoed the EU’s $2.21 trillion budget that includes both COVID-19 relief and climate change funds. These states that are borderline authoritarian sound just like the Trump administration and the Trump senate to me. It’s a real shame that Poland, a state that was formally ravaged by fascism, is starting to become fascist itself again.
