Re “Brushing Aside Critics, Trump Praises Hungary’s Authoritarian Leader” (news article, May 14):
Donald Trump’s decision to host the Hungarian strongman, Viktor Orban, was disgraceful. It is an insult to every American who values democracy and freedom, and especially those who have served our nation valiantly in the effort to preserve the way of life we treasure. Mr. Orban is a ruthless autocrat who has betrayed the citizens of his wonderful country and has stripped their rights in myriad ways. I guess that’s why Mr. Trump wants to be his friend.
