    Hungary sends EU a pointed pro-Orbán message

    The Brussels establishment may view Hungary’s outspoken prime minister, Viktor Orbán, as a xenophobic outcast, but his own country stands behind him — something many other EU leaders can’t take for granted these days. For Europe, this was the loudest message from Hungarian voters in their referendum Sunday, in which more than 98...

    The mystery of Donald Trump’s man in Moscow

    In March, in a bold “Oh yeah?” moment during an interview with the Washington Post’s editorial board, Donald Trump took the paper’s dare and revealed, then and there, his very short list of foreign policy advisers.
