    Hungarian Parliament passes bill that gives PM Orbán unlimited power & proclaims:

    - State of emergency w/o time limit
    - Rule by decree
    - Parliament suspended
    - No elections
    - Spreading fake news + rumors: up to 5 yrs in prison
    - Leaving quarantine: up to 8 yrs in prison
    I saw this, so yeah Hungary just became a nailed on dictatorship. I'm sure Trump has already congratulated Orban for his strong leadership.
