  1. Brilliant move! Viktor Orbán already has positioned himself as refusing to tolerate an EU-sponsored “immigrant” invasion of Hungary. Poland, Czechia, and Slovakia, now need only ride on his coattails and continue their monolithic stance.

  2. Well, in contrast to his “America First” campaign rhetoric, Trump seems to be setting us up for a shooting war with Russia over vital US interests such as Crimea, NATO membership for Estonia, and the proper government of Syria. This might work to the benefit of the Visegrad countries. The Brussels gnomes heading the EU might think twice before poking the Russian bear who is primed for defense. The Visegrad countries, alienated from the EU and probably anticipating an armed intervention, will be low-hanging fruit for a Russian strategic alliance.
