Budapest Mayor: Biden's Inauguration Speech Holds Message For Hungary
Joe Biden’s inauguration speech holds pertinent messages that apply to Hungary, Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony said, referring to the president’s call for healing and unity.

Joint efforts to fight the pandemic, unemployment, poverty and growing inequalities — as Biden advocated — could bring closure to a “painful period” of division, Karácsony said on Facebook.

The mayor accused the Hungarian government of conflating itself with the nation and “changing Hungary unilaterally”, while hijacking all institutions of what would otherwise be shared power structures.

“We need to restore a Hungary that belongs to all of its citizens,” he said.
