Re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

538 electoral votes = 100 senators + 435 congressmen + 23rd amendment gives DC three EVs (so, number of congressional members = 538 EVs minus DC's 3)

Otherwise passable Trumpese, but imo Trump would never use that specific phrasing.

Orban, who has made “zero tolerance” for immigration his main theme in the past four years and was elected to a third consecutive term in April, said the initiative is meant to “ensure the survival of the Hungarian nation.”

“This is the Hungarians’ answer, not immigration,” Orban said.
White House officials, anti-abortion activists attend "Make Families Great Again" event hosted by Hungary's embassy

Quote:
...White House special assistant Katy Talento, White House strategic communications director Mercedes Schlapp and several members of Congress, who on March 14 attended an invitation-only conference — “Make Families Great Again” — hosted by the Embassy of Hungary at the Library of Congress in Washington.

U.S. Health and Human Services senior adviser Valerie Huber, known for her support of abstinence-only education, was a keynote speaker at the event to promote Orban’s seven-point “Family Protection Action Plan,” designed to promote marriage and families and spawn a baby boom.

Also present were prominent antiabortion leaders, including Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and representatives from the Heritage Foundation’s DeVos Center for Religion and Civil Society.

Of Perkins and Talento, NovŠk tweeted: “They praised HU’s commitment for strengthening #families and encouraged me to further support them.” She also shared praise from Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.), whom she quoted as saying, “#Hungary is a beacon of hope. Thank you to PM #Orban that he is a friend of families.”

It's not unexpected. Mussolini supported Hitler and they both supported Franco. The nationalists/fascists have an affinity for one another as long as it's Germans for Germany, Italians for Italy and Spanish for Spain and no international power.

5% chance trump knows what the acronym gdp stands for and 0% chance he can explain what it measures.
