It’s all true. It should be celebrated.

Is that part of the attraction for you?

Those policy wins are very appealing to us. But you use the word “attraction” like, you know, there’s some strange affinity here — that, to be fair, Lulu, many of your colleagues in the media like to insinuate. And that’s just absurd on its face. There are policy wins on family policy, on foreign policy, on public safety, on education that we laud and have for 51 years in South Korea, in Taiwan, in England, in Germany, in France, in Africa.

When I used the word “attraction,” I wasn’t trying to suggest anything illicit.

Fair enough. Thanks for having fun.

That said, Orban brags about turning Hungary into an “illiberal democracy” — his words. He’s anti-L.G.B.T. He’s anti-immigrant. He said explicitly that he wants to prevent Europe from becoming “mixed race.” Over his four terms, he presided over a pattern of democratic backsliding in Hungary.

I’ve not seen that.

That is the estimation of members of the European Union.

They’re incorrect.

He’s also very open about being a Christian nationalist. And you’ve said in a previous interview, “Modern Hungary is not just a model for conservative statecraft but the model.”

I think there are lessons from a lot of countries, including Hungary, including Poland, for similar reasons. It’s interesting, just as a side note, that people get infatuated with the American right’s affinity for Mr. Orban, but they don’t understand the same affinity we have for at least the previous government in Poland, for the same reasons.
